Earlier this evening we reported that the updated Facebook app for Windows Phone 7.x was submitted to the Store. At the time, it was unclear from Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore if the app still needed approval or how long it would take to be published.
We can now report as of 10PM ET, the new Beta of the app is available for download.
The app uses the same Beta link for the Windows Phone 8 version, found below, though its version number is 188.8.131.52, as opposed to the 5.1.02 found for newer devices. Otherwise, the app appears to be exactly the same besides a few subtle differences.
