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 126.96.36.199 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.
Notice anything new? Let us know in comments.
Head to the Windows Phone Store now to grab the latest Facebook beta app.
