    So what's it look like? Any changes or improvement over the existing FB app?

    It's much better than any previous official Facebook app. Not perfect (some actions have no animations, thus making them look a bit weird and boring, scrolling is not smooth enough...), but pretty good for a Beta app.

    The app has been in the Windows store for a while in closed beta for while now limited only to a few folks for testing. It would let you login but not use it after that unless you are part of the beta program.

    Yeah, I know, but I actually downloaded it and I can even use it. Not sure how many people can use it though...

    Interesting, I've had it installed since the closed beta was published, but haven't been able to login since it was closed. I literally just thought about it last night and tried to login and it was still closed. I'll have to check if I'm able to access it later today.

    No...clicking the messenger icon simply sends you to their messenger web service...

    Looks good so far, better than what they fave wor Windows 8. I just hope that all features from other versions come here as well. Windows 10 Mobile is slowly but surely getting some of those goodies...

    PS - I want to view 360 videos on these apps!

    It is Facebook lead me to download the app, I checked my Facebook n Edge browser as usual, and it pop up "Facebook for windows 10" on my timeline , so I guess I was chosen by them.

    I've had it for a couple months...

    One day, logged in, had a notification on Facebook of the Beta invite... Downloaded and installed on all my Windows 10 desktop device... Works great! Although haven't used it much except when I'm on my laptop or Surface Pro...

    Lucky! I wish I was part of the beta program.
    I use Facebook.com all the time on my desktop PC, but I've never received this invite :(

    How does one find "old" invites on FB? Maybe I was invited to join and I missed it. I want to be part of the beta. :)
