If you enjoy the features and user experience that Facebook has to offer, then one of the best things that you can do is to enroll in the beta program. Even though most people are not too keen on joining the beta program for any app, it’s worth it for Facebook. Not only are beta users the first ones to always access the latest updates, but they don’t even have to deal with bugs and glitches.
Since Facebook is the world’s biggest social media app, then it should come as no surprise that the developers of the app are very careful about every new software change or tweaks that they make in order to avoid bugs. Nonetheless, let’s go ahead and check out the latest update for Facebook which arrived earlier today.
Facebook 188.8.131.52.117 Beta Update
The new update for Facebook sports the 184.108.40.206.117 version number and it is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels right now. However, the only ones who can download the new update right now are Facebook users who have created beta accounts. Therefore, the only thing that Facebook beta users need to do in order to access the new update is to simply keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
The question that all Facebook fans must be asking right now is what’s new? Well, everyone should be pleased to find out that the new update focuses on improving the software reliability and performance speed of the social media app. Therefore, the new update introduces a bundle of bug fixes and under the hood software tweaks that are going to take Facebook’s overall performances to the next level.
We also want to note that there is a way to download the new update without enrolling in the beta program. However, this involves downloading the update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit) and the installation process can be quite tricky at times.
