The update came out yesterday, so we wanted to give you the down and dirty on it:
New feature that allows users to send 60 second voice messages. This free voice calling feature is still limited to certain regions and hasn’t been added to the main app. Only available via Messenger for iOS
Record videos by selecting “Photo” above News Feed or “Share Photo” from Timeline and then swiping from camera mode to video mode. The process is quite awkward. You are unable to share pre-recorded Facebook messages.
Ability to hide and mark posts as spam directly from news feed
A much more simple approach – tap the icon with three dots in the right hand corner of the post, and then select the appropriate action. You still don’t have an option to hide mobile app install ads or ads within its “Pages You Might Like” module.
The Nearby feature also got a small update with a streamlined look and more information about what’s located near you based on Facebook’s Knowledge Graph.
Facebook’s updated mobile app is available now for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch from Apple’s App Store.
