    So I installed the latest mobile preview build earlier today (reflash 8.1 -> 10549 -> reset -> restore backup) and after it finished installing apps I noticed that the Facebook Beta app had received a facelift with new Windows 10 aesthetic elements. Nested comments and other missing features are still not implemented, just saying.

    After digging through the app, which is version 10.0 by the way, I noticed also some interesting settings which either are new to this version or I had not noticed before: App permisions (Manage connected applications) - which is empty for now, and Upload and Roaming Settings, in which three interesting toggles can be found:
    1. Allow posting to Facebook using my mobile network? (for media)
    2. Roam my Facebook settings across devices (must be logged in with the same Microsoft account on each device)
    3. Let me start and stop posts on different devices (draft posts will be synced)


    Given that the app is not available for PCs and I only have one Windows phone, I haven't been able to test the last two features. Did everyone who updated tonight receive these changes and if so, can they test if the two features mentioned above actually work?

    My 1520 got it, but my 920 and 1020 are not seeing this update yet. I'm sure this is rolling out but I'll post up some screenshots of this update.

    The app says last updated today but its win10 only. Says that it was completely redesigned for 10 and has stuff like inline video play.

    The promised Universal App possibly? Though this is from MS right? hmmm...

    Yes, the publisher is still Microsoft, and while the settings point towards a future universal app, currently it is not (similar to 6tag).

    Notifications have also been revamped. Their icon can now be a profile picture or another indicator (group post/comment) and some are actionable (those for comments, for example).

    I have a 920 as well (yellow, launch day and unlocked, actually). Either you did something different (I did: reflash 8.1 -> 10549 -> reset -> restore backup), or the app is just not openly available for everyone.

    Uhm, multiple people have gotten the update already, I even saw tweets about the new app. Replies #4 and #5 from Kyle Stilkey even contain screenshots. How can you think this is a joke?

    Perhaps it's not openly available yet.

    Is this app update related to which version of win 10 mobile you are on? Are only builds number 10549 getting it? Cuz i didn't install the last build and didn't get it yet...

    So how do you get the Facebook beta app? I seem to only have the old Facebook app, and I'm on 10549 - do I need to sign up for something??

    I do a lot of reading and writing in comments, so I was hoping that would be added now. I don't understand why this isn't done. The app is useless for me without it.
