Keeping up with friends is faster than ever with the new Facebook app for Windows 10, the best way to experience Facebook on Windows. With Live Tiles, you can easily find out what your friends and family are up to at a glance. And now, reading and sharing articles from News Feed is quick and easy with an in-app browser. Other features include Reactions, stickers in comments, notifications so that you don’t miss important updates, and a right-hand column that shows birthday, event reminders and trending topics.
Along with many of your favorite features of Facebook’s Messenger — like photo sharing, stickers, group conversations and GIFs — Messenger for Windows 10 PCs has desktop notifications so you never miss an important message. And when you pin the app to your Start menu you’ll get notified of new messages with Live Tiles.
Just like the new Facebook app, the new Messenger app is only available for PCs – however, Microsoft didn’t share any info on if the new app will be coming to Windows 10 Mobile. Lastly, Facebook is also introducing the new Instagram app for Windows 10 Mobile. With the new Instagram app, Facebook is introducing all the latest features, including Direct Messaging, improved Search and Explore, support for multiple accounts, and much more. As expected, the app also supports Live Tiles and notifications. The new Instagram app will replace the current Instagram (beta) app on Windows 10 Mobile, and it probably won’t be coming to PCs anytime soon. Microsoft stated:
The team over at Instagram is rolling out Instagram for Windows 10 mobile with all of the community’s favorite features — including Direct Messaging, updated Search and Explore, Videos and Account Switching. Instagram also supports Live Tiles, so if you pin the app to your home screen you’ll get notifications from Instagram right on your start screen.
The new Windows 10 apps from Facebook are, indeed, quite impressive. Hopefully, the company will provide good support for all of these apps in the coming months, and keep them up-to-date with the latest features. If you are using Windows 10, you will get updates for all of these apps in the coming hours as the updates are still rolling out in the Windows Store. Source
