Facebook pushed out an updated version of its Android app last night. The new version has a sleeker user interface, complete with a notification bar on the home screen which you can pull up to see a list of your latest notifications, and a media bar which you can scroll through to see recent photos and videos from your contacts.

The new Facebook app also adds the following features:

  • Respond to friend requests without opening the web browser
  • Improved Events support (you can now RSVP without opening a web browser)
  • Support for H.264 video playback

There’s still no Facebook chat support, although there are third party apps for that.  But overall the latest version of Facebook for Android is a big improvement. It’s available as a free download from the Android Market.
