One particularly significant new addition to the Facebook app is support for the Continuum feature in Windows 10 Mobile; that feature effectively allows users to turn their high-end handsets into mini-PCs, by connecting them to a larger monitor or TV, and interacting with them via a mouse and keyboard, complete with a PC-style user interface and Start menu.

The list of changes in the new Facebook app update includes:

  • Redesigned for Windows 10
  • Improved user experience for bigger screens
  • Interactive notifications
  • Improved navigation
  • Improved photo viewing experience
  • In-line video playback and improved video experience
  • Continuum support
  • Narrator support
  • Improved localization quality
  • More languages supported
  • Web Account Manager SSO support

The updated Facebook app for Windows 10 Mobile is available to download free via the Windows Store.
