Today we’re launching an updated Facebook app for Android. It’s now quicker and easier to view photos, get messages and navigate around the app.

Photos get better
Photos and albums are up to two times faster than the previous Android app. It’s also easier to share photos, view comments and edit captions on the go.

Update to Android

View photos with tags, comments and likes

Messages on top
Your messages and notifications are now at the top of your screen. You can respond to friends and stay updated without leaving the page you’re on.
