Many of the Windows 8 users have probably forgot for how long we had to wait for the official Facebook app to get released on the Windows Store. But it’s been here for a few good months and now we’re seeing it receiving a big update.

According to the official changelog of the Facebook app for Windows 8.1 devices, and also for those of you who are running the first preview of Windows 10, a few interesting things have changed.

Facebook app gets updated for Windows devices with important features

The Facebook app has been updated with the following new features:

  • Sticker Store
  • Better Caching
  • Delete/Archive Message Threads
  • Post as Page Admin
  • Message Received Sound

By ‘better caching’, you should read – faster loading times, which is definitely something Windows tablet owners have been looking forward to. Of course, a bunch of the traditional bug fixes have been issued, as well, so the app shouldn’t glitch as much as it did before.
