Facebook app for Windows Phone Beta program now underway, major redesign underway

Facebook app for Windows Phone Beta

Microsoft is launching a new Beta program designed to help speed up the delivery of new features in the official Facebook app for Windows Phone. Microsoft is looking for eager beta testers to try out the new app, which features a major redesign.

The Facebook app for Windows Phone features a major redesign and has implemented several user-requested features. Those features include support for high-res photos, post sharing, and Facebook Timeline.

Beta testers are needed to report bugs, provide feature requests, and other feedback via the Settings > About page in the app. Beta testers are also urged to create a Windows Phone Store review. Beta testers can still run the current Facebook app (version 4.2.1) alongside the Beta app.

Hit the download link below to snag the Beta app! For those wondering why this Beta app is not showing up in the Windows Phone Store, dont worry, this was intentional. You must download the Beta app via a direct link (which we have provided for you below). Happy testing!
