Microsoft updates the official Facebook app on Windows Phone

In the next few weeks, Microsoft will release Windows 10 Mobile, a key component in its new Universal Windows Platform, which will allow developers to create apps with one codebase that can run across a vast range of Windows 10 devices, including smartphones. Nonetheless, Microsoft is continuing to make improvements for those on Windows Phone 8.1, including updates to the apps that it oversees.

Today, as Windows Central reports, Microsoft updated the Facebook app on Windows Phone 8.1, bringing the latest release up to version 8.3.7.0. Despite being the official Facebook app on the OS, it was actually built - and is still maintained - by Microsoft, but the latest update doesn't bring much in the way of new features.

The version notes - posted at the bottom of the app's Store listing - say that the new release includes only "resource management improvements" and the all-too-familiar and unhelpfully vague "bug fixes".

Yesterday, Facebook announced a range of improvements on the way to its mobile experience, including some significant changes to the interface in its mobile apps. However, it appears that the latest update to the Facebook app on Windows Phone was unrelated to that announcement.
