The Windows 10 Facebook app has been updated to version 57.490. This version comes without a change log, but the changes are visible, and they include mainly cosmetic improvements.

This update also brings a few functional improvements as well. One of the most important ones is a fix that solves an annoying comment bug on tablets. Many users complained that they couldn’t post comments or updates from their tablet because the cursor wouldn’t go to the next line when they pressed the Enter button on the virtual keyboard.

Another change is related to the location of the button allowing you to add photos and videos. The respective button is now located above the status update box.

This is not the only Facebook update released this month. Users can now test the new Facebook Messenger app beta for Windows 10 Mobile, and it seems that the new Messenger app is exactly what Windows 10 Mobile users have always wanted.

The new Facebook Messenger app offers long-awaited features such as the ability to view GIFs, add stickers, and add nicknames, along with other cool things. It appears that groups and push notifications are also available, as well as Lie Tile support.

The Xbox One hasn’t been forgotten either as the Facebook Friend Finder feature came to Microsoft’s console earlier this month. This feature allows you to find and add your Facebook friends on the Xbox Live, and you’ll also see friend suggestions as more and more gamers link their Facebook and Xbox Live accounts.

You can now show off your game achievements via this feature and see if your friends were indeed speaking the truth while they boasted about their gaming accomplishments.
