Not too long ago, Facebook introduced a beta program for Android users who want the latest and greatest builds of Facebook on their devices. Today, a new update is available, bringing a few new features and loads of fixes. As for the new stuff, Messenger users will see a few animated stickers, which should hopefully bring a bit of humor to all of your IMs between friends.
As for Facebook Home users, music controls have been added to your lockscreen, so that’s a huge plus. Before this update, you would have to completely unlock your device and control your music from either the music app itself or the notification bar. Good job, FB.
- Some stickers are now animated in messages—see Pusheen, Beast and Anooki wave, dance and wiggle! (Android 4.0.2 and higher)
- A fix for a problem that was causing album covers to be shown instead of the photo you tapped to view.
- The app should no longer crash when viewing photos in full screen.
- Other bug fixes.
- Speed and performance improvements.
- Control the music you’re listening to right from your lock screen if using Home.
