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.
