The company has rebuilt the Android app from scratch in the hope of improving user experience with faster speed connections and a better performance. All Facebook services will now be the same on each major platform.

Android users will now get the same experience from their device that iOS users do. A post on Facebook’s engineering blog says; “we’re moving from a hybrid native/webview to pure native code, allowing us to optimize the Facebook experience for faster loading, new user interfaces, disk cache, and so on.”

The updated versions will load the News Feed quicker and improve the performance of the Timeline. The whole app should run faster on the iPhone.

Also, users can now select a specific album to upload photos to from the iOS app. The Android format has had this functionality since October.

Facebook has previously promised to update its mobile apps every 1 to 2 months which includes the iOS, Android, Facebook Messenger, and Facebook Camera apps. This new update has come just over a month since the last one.
