Facebook Updates Its Android App

On Friday Facebook upgraded its Facebook for Android application to version 1.6, tweaking the News Feed and support for Pages along with Video Upload to improve its customers' user experience.

Facebook has updated its Android app to 1.6 version to offer Android-based smartphone users a few enhanced features in news feed as well as along with ability to upload videos to the Facebook profile directly from the phone, Tech Tree (opens in new tab) reports.

The update, which has to be done manually, will now allow users to browse pages on the website while still being in the app rather than getting redirected every time, saving a lot of time for users who previously had to switch back and forth.

“That is cool but there is no way to quickly search for a Page. You must find it in your News Feed. This is a bit of a downer, especially since iOS' Facebook app has had this feature for ages,” Android For Guys wrote.

To upgrade the app, users will have to first load the Android Market app and then select My apps section. The update is for Android version 1.5 or higher.

Of course, Android users who are still unhappy with the Facebook App can simply choose to use their favorite browser and check out their profile online.
