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 184.108.40.206, 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.
Being that this is still a beta of the Facebook app, featuring a new UI and added features, presumably users will be getting more frequent updates to keep it up to date along with the Windows Phone 8 version. Likewise, being as this is still in testing, users may expect bugs or oddities with this release.
If you have a Windows Phone 7.x device, head here to the Store to grab the updated Facebook Beta, version 3.1.02. You can also scan the QR code below or swipe to the right in our app.
Let us know in comments how it is!
