Facebook Beta for Windows Phone updated to version 10.0 with new settings, more

The Facebook Beta app for Windows Phone appears to be getting a pretty interesting update this evening, at least for some folks. We've received several tips that the beta app has been updated to version 10.0, which would be a big push up from the current version, and it brings some new settings along for the ride.

We haven't yet received the update on our end, but Windows Central forums user Nicholas EK has reported some interesting changes. First off, in the Settings menu, there are new sections labeled "App Permissions" and "Upload and Roaming Settings." The former is currently empty, but the latter contains toggles for allowing the posting of media via your mobile connection, roaming Facebook settings across devices, and the ability to draft posts on one device and finish on another. In addition, there appear to be some Windows 10 aesthetic elements along for the ride as well.

Again, we haven't spotted this update on our own Windows 10 Mobile devices just yet, but the number of tips we've received indicates that something is happening. It's possible that the rollout is phased, or the store simply hasn't updated for everyone yet. Still, you can check at the Windows Store link below to nab the latest update if it's available.

Thanks for the tips, everyone!
