Do you enjoy spending time on Facebook? If that is the case, then you should be pleased to know that the massive social media app has just received a new update. However, this is not a normal update and it’s available exclusively to beta users. Fortunately, Facebook is allowing everyone who uses an Android-powered smartphone to join the beta program and receive access to all the latest updates ahead of everyone else.
Facebook 240.0.0.28.118 Beta Update
As previously mentioned, the new update for Facebook is available in the beta form. This is why we are advising all Facebook fans who want to download it to first enroll in the beta program. if you are already enrolled in the beta program, then the only thing that you need to do is to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network since the update is rolling out via official OTA (over the air) channels.
The APK Variant
Alternative, the update can also be accessed in the form of APK. This is a special type of update and the APK acronym stands for “Android Package Kit”. Therefore, APK releases can only be installed on Android-powered smartphones. Furthermore, APK releases make it possible for non-beta fans of Facebook to manually download and install the new update on their smartphones.
In case you are wondering what are the “goodies” that the new update brings, then you should be pleased to know that it comes with a handful of “under the hood” tweaks. The reason why these tweaks are dubbed as “under the hood” is that even though Facebook fans might not be able to see them as they would with a new feature, they are going to feel them because they will improve the overall performances of the social media app.
