Facebook updates Windows 8.1 app with lots of new features

Facebook's development team for its official Windows 8.1 app have released several updates since the first version launched just over a month ago. It is currently the most popular free app in the Windows Store and today, a new version was released that offers up a number of new features and improvements.

The change log on the Windows Store page shows that the Facebook app now supports tagging for the first time. Users can now download and upload both files and photos from Facebook messages with this new update, along with a way to pick and set up both your cover and profile photos directly from the app.

The new version now lets users upload any pictures to a specific album and also offers some improvements to Live Tiles, including a way to add a secondary tile that takes the user directly to Facebook messages. Finally, the app also has "many bug fixes" but specifics were not revealed.

The amount of updates that have been pushed through for the Facebook app since its launch shows that the company is serious about its support for the Windows 8.1 version and bodes well for future updates and new features.
