Facebook moves some things around in its latest beta update for Windows 10

The official Facebook Beta app for Windows 10 has just received an update that introduces a number of cosmetic changes. The company has moved a few things around in the UI in a bid to make things slightly more convenient to use. We'll kick off with the change that sees the Messenger entry on the sidebar now deeplinks to the separate Messenger app, just like it would on competing mobile platforms.


Next up are the UI changes. We've noticed Facebook has moved both the Facebook Live and Photo/Video buttons to the top of the news feed and are now available within the "What's new?" box. So now you'll be able to quickly add media and start a live broadcast without having to hunt down these pesky buttons.

Excited by the changes? Sound off your thoughts in the comments, as well as anything you have spotted post-updating that we may have overlooked.
