Although it’s a bit early in the week, the Facebook team has pushed out yet another update for the beta app on Windows Phone 8. Version 22.214.171.124 is now live in the Store, a bump in 0.0.0.1 version numbers.
That means we’re not expecting anything revolutionary with this update, although the developers do have a rather detailed changelog that falls under the rubric of version “5.2”. (Edit: turns out this may be a pretty big update after all).
According to the changelog, here’s what is new:
- Faster and more reliable notifications
- Toasts for Facebook chat
- Redesigned primary tile
- Redesigned secondary tiles for chat, events, groups, pages, and photo albums
- Messaging improvements
- Performance improvements
- Support for additional languages
We’re not 100% sure that all came with today’s update, rather it seems like a backlog of changes starting with the 5.2.x.x, which began earlier this month. Regardless, updates are updates and we’re going to assume things are better with this 0.0.0.3 update over 0.0.0.2.
