Facebook 1.6

Facebook has rolled out an updated Android app with a handful of new features including the ability to upload videos. When you tap the speech bubble icon to start a new status update you can now tap the camera button to the left and choose to upload either a photo or a video to your Facebook account.

The update also adds support for Pages… but it’s limited support at best. You can’t view a list of pages, and if you manage a Facebook page you can’t access any of the settings from the Android app. Instead you can simply tap on the name of a Facebook Page that appears in your news feed to view that page’s wall, info, or photos. I suppose it’s better than nothing, but it’s not very intuitive.

Facebook 1.6 is available as a free download from the Android Market.
