Facebook App to be Updated Soon – Full Details on Changes (V2.5)

April 24, 2012 3 Comments

Finally Facebook/Windows Phone are looking through users concerns with the current app and are looking to push a big update our way. The update should be arriving soon but the team has detailed exactly what will be in the update.

The Facebook for Windows Phone team:


Hello everyone,

Firstly, thanks for all your feedback over the past few months. We read every comment you submit on Facebook, through email, and through the Marketplace, we use them to plan features for releases and we really appreciate all the work you put into feeding back. We’re listening :-)

The team has been working hard over the past few weeks on building the next version of Facebook for Windows Phone, and as we’re getting close to release we thought now would be a good time to share with you some of the upcoming features you’ll be finding in v2.5:

  • Threaded messaging – Full Facebook threaded messaging including group messaging, all in a beautiful Metro style design
  • Tagging – Now you can tag friends and locations in your posts in the ‘with’ and ‘at’ format.
  • Delete posts and comments – Use the tap and hold context menu to delete posts and comments from your wall.
  • Active links in posts – Tap on links in posts to go directly to the content.
  • Updates to the photo comments and likes page – The photo comments and likes page has been updated to match the posts comments and likes page. You can see a hint of the image at the top of the page, pull down and you can see the whole thing.
  • And finally, by popular demand – you can now ‘like’ comments!

We’re just going through our final rounds of testing and sign off, then we’ll be able to share it with the world. Keep your eyes peeled for the launch announcement on this page, and for the update notification on the Marketplace tile.

Thanks everyone!

The Facebook for Windows Phone team.
