Facebook Beta for Windows Phone

The original Facebook app on Windows Phone back in the day was pretty bad. Thankfully the forces who can make a difference have over the past few months with the Facebook Beta app. That original beta has since become the official app for Facebook users, but the beta is still going strong. That very beta just received an update to version 5.1.0.1 that brings a slew of new features. Let’s check it out.

Navigate yourself to the Store and you’ll see version 5.1.0.1 of the Facebook Beta app sitting there. The last update at the beginning of August brought emotion support for status updates and general stability/bug fixes. Update or install to find the following new additions:

  • Performance improvements
  • Inline tagging
  • Image attachments in messaging
  • Multile photo upload
  • Save/share photos
  • Navigation improvements

Facebook Beta for Windows Phone

Somewhat of a big update, right? Inline tagging (aka mentioning a friend) is something a lot of you have been wanting for a long time. Also very welcomed is the ability to attach images in a message. Why limit yourself to one photo now that the app supports multiple photo upload? Not a bad update to the beta and performance does seem to be snappier at first blush.

What do you beautiful people think of the latest update? Sound off below.
