Facebook for Windows Phone picks up a minor update today

Facebook App

Typically when the beta for Facebook on Windows Phone gets a few updates you’ll see the official app follow suit shortly after. Since the beta was received a few number of updates, we’re looking at a new update for “official” version of Facebook in the Windows Phone Store.

The last update for Facebook on Windows Phone came out in late December. It was a substantial update that brought a ton of new features. Most notable were new Live tiles, push notifications, login URI and a lot more. That was version 5.2.1 of the app, today we have an update that brings us to 5.2.2. Anything new?

Unfortunately this doesn’t look to be a big update since the changelog is still the one from the previous update. Chalk it up as bug fixes and performance improvements. Let us know in the comments if you notice anything new or improved.

Thanks for the tip Dareen!

Facebook for Windows Phone picks up a minor update today


NO ! we will have one indeed just like we have one for windows 8.1 , it will sync with people hub like Skype does at moment, it integrates itself with people hub , so we will get faster updates for Facebook with new features . makes sense ;)

cant say about this , hope Facebook will create an official one with new API , they did with windows 8.1;

and I am happy they are removing Facebook integration from people hub , it lacks many features , so hopefully 8.1 with app will fill our demands

The beta one is acting weird on me. It shows me late notifications, way after they happen on the web.

It brings v5 into Czech Republic! There was only v3 available in Czech store until today.

I'm talking about posts. I mean when you comment on a post.

edit: yeah, i agree it can access photo library, just that we can't attach pictures in comments. so you're right. :)

We r getting twitter integration with 8.1. But even the app needs an update though its still working well for me.

I wish that one day, I would open wpcentral.com and find this headline "Facebook picks a major update that pumps it up to the level of android and iOS Facebook app" but then again, its just a dream after all

The official Facebook app for Windows Phone is very annoying, at least if you have used the one for Android or iOS. Our WP Facebook app seems full of texts, boring and ugly even though very neat (love the neatness of the background), no instagram photos, unnecessary friends of your friends bday texts and greetings showing all over . MS is a big company, please fix this app cos it makes my WP sometimes look like 3rd class when it comes to Facebooking! And no worthy 3rd party app for Facebook still?!

Seems like they finally fixed really wierd bug, here in Czech Rep. Becouse before this update, we can't get the 5.x version, only 3.x for WP7,8.

I miss the old Facebook ui it was classic metro cream but the whiners push to make it look like android and IOS so sad

At first I thought this was a troll and then I realized it's true, they lifted the greyed cover photo idea. Kinda like it

I hate that they removed the update that stop the news feed from refreshing everytime you share something. I would I want to start back at the beginning over and over again?

I stopped using the fb app long ago. It's just useless when many posts don't show. I use the mobile site pinned to my start screen.

The upload status bar when uploading photos is inaccurate, it always shows half-complete everytime and finishes itself right away lol

Graphical emoticons (not emojis) in messages... Previously it shows just symbols like :) ;) :/... But now we can see emoticons.

It was working a lot better before the latest update. Notifications are delayed again, and I end up chatting on facebook with friends only to have the 30 or so notifications come through after we've already had the conversation which is annoying. Unable to read long posts or messages, the continue reading tab takes me to the browser, pretty inconvenient. Well that's my 5cents, hopefully it helps with further development ;)

The official Facebook App aswell the beta, keeps crashing seconds later after open them. This issue starts today early in the night. I already reinstalled the app, restart the phone, but it keeps crashing :'( I have a Lumia 1020.

I'm from Costa Rica, if I change the Region + Format to United States +English, the app works again. What happens here?!
