Facebook's official app is now available as beta for Windows 10

Microsoft has long been the developer of the Facebook app for Windows Phone. While a pain, the company has done a solid job on its offerings throughout the years. But it's time to step aside as Facebook has just rolled out an official app in beta. Should you be rocking Windows 10 or a phone on Windows 10 Mobile, you'll be able to enjoy Facebook's new UWP app.

Loading up the beta on both our Windows 10 Mobile handset and Windows 10-powered PC, we can safely recommend the app for those who simply have to remain connected to the social network. For a beta, it's a solid experience and one we've had little issue in using thus far.

Fear not if you're unable to download the app as the store is still likely propagating. If you have managed to install the app, give us your thoughts in the comments!
