Latest Facebook Windows 8.1 update adds notification settings

The launch of the official Facebook app for Windows 8.1 users has been a big hit so far; it has quickly become the number one most downloaded free app on the Windows Store. Facebook has also updated the app more than once since its mid-October release but unfortunately, its Windows Store page never shows any change logs.

This week, yet another update to the app was released and while Facebook didn't officially reveal what was changed or added, Windows Observer spotted that there are now a bunch of notification settings that have been put into the app. We have confirmed this on our own as well.

Users of the Facebook Windows 8.1 app can go into "Settings" to see the new notification selection on the menu. Pressing that option brings up the interface shown in the above screenshot, with a large number of notifications that can be turned on or off by the user. The full list includes:

  • Messages
  • Wall
  • Poke
  • Friend Request
  • Friend Confirmed
  • Feed Confirmed
  • Feed Comment Reply
  • Share Comment

  • Photo Tag

  • Event Invite
  • Event Update
  • Event Cancel

The new addition certainly gives heavy Facebook users a lot of new options and is a welcome update for the Windows 8.1 app.
