    For video, search youtube with: "Unboxing e recensione di Microsoft Lumia 650"
    @ 5:00 minute it appears

    I can't post external links yet on WindowsCentral!

    So..now they are 2 beta's? one from Microsoft and one from Facebook themselves.
    Problem is the one from Facebook is developed using OSmeta (which makes app run laggy as hell on W10M)
    Funny thing that will happen, facebook beta from Microsoft will be retired and facebook beta from Facebook will take it's place. So instead of gaining better performance we will get a crappier app.
    No offense to Facebook, but instead of using MS technology they want to use the OSmeta they bought, that makes app run crappy on other platforms.
    It will be a very funny year for Microsoft.

    Let's hope for the best. Maybe they'll optimize it better through time. The most important thing now is to have a fully functional app!

    Apparently, not many know about it including myself! It was never posted to major Windows Mobile websites, and I read them daily, so this news was shocking for me! :D :D

    I hope the contextual features that are in the Microsoft-made app come to this app (quick replies to comments in the notifications, and quick RSVP options). If not then I'm personally never switching over. Even if it does run smoother.

    The only difference I find between iOS' Facebook app vs Windows' is the speed that pages and timelines are loaded at. Windows' app takes forever, especially when on a slow connection

    Just hope that it can connect with the OS like the current app.

    I am not even doubtful that this app will be fully-featured including all the latest additions to the Facebook apps on other platforms. Look at the new Instagram App, it has everything. What I am worried about actually is the performance.

    I've never understood the complaints about the Microsoft app. while it lagged behind in features I personally never had the experience that many people. Have said they had.

    I hope it won't be an app which feels like a WP8.0 app like Instagram beta "for Windows 10". I mean, when you hide the navigation bar, the app doesn't rescale; instead, there's a black bar where the navbar stands.

    I really hope it's not a limitation of that osmeta tool FB are using: we want *beautiful* W10 apps, not technically ported but not comfortable apps.

    We'll see how instagram beta evolves, and how FB/Messenger UWA react when they're released.

    The current app is lacking on many levels:
    - The news feed (although better) is still not showing the right stories at the right order (compared to the mobile website).
    - The most recent news feed isn't continuous (shows the right stories first, but after you go down further it shows way older stories)
    - The UI is a bit clunky and unresponsive at times.
    - No way to re-arrange comments (chronological, top comments, most recent)
    - Performance is still laggy and the whole app feels slow, especially when refreshing stories.
    - When playing a video in landscape, and pressing on the screen, the video freezes while it's still playing.
    - Pressing on some stories (especially if you have a notification from that story) can take you to the mobile website.

    That's what I can think of currently.

    LOL this is the right attitude, let's start complaining about performance looking at screnshots (or looking at another beta app still under full development)

    It loads data slow, slow to load comments, pictures, the app crashes frequently, and it's not stable the beta and main app.

    Every other app loads fine 6tag, instagram, mtalk, read it, disqus etc its only this Facebook app I even tried moving it to device memory it's still sluggish and slow

    It will lose People hub integration. So I don't care for it. The current app does everything I need. But Sedp23 makes valid points

    Why did assume that it will lose the integration?

    I miss the native hubs concept so bad. It was one of the few differentiators that gave WP its identity.
