As Microsoft readies itself to launch the Windows 8.1 OS termed as “Blue”, the major social network, Facebook’s app will be ready for download alongside with the new operating system’s launch.
According to some users, who have the RTM version of the Windows 8.1 can download the new Facebook app from Windows Store. However, others should have to wait till the launch of the Windows 8.1 later today. Since the launch of Microsoft Windows 8, the users were waiting for the official FB app with modern UI, and many third party apps popped out in Windows Store trying to encash the opportunity. In June, Microsoft promised the users that the Official Facebook app is in works and addition to this Microsoft Spain’s Twitter account also confirmed the release of the app during the Windows 8.1 launch date and later deleted the tweet.
The Facebook app for the new OS seems identical to the webpage, with news feeds, messaging, status updates and notifications in same places and the only difference seen in bare eyes is the addition of the app updates visible in Windows Start tile. As of now, it might be bit harder to find the official app in between lot of unofficial applications, later the official might come first in search. Microsoft is obviously working hard to bring many developers into the platform to build new applications and games as the similar ideas of Apple’s iOS store and Google’s Play store ad given them huge success. Shall we wish them “best of luck”?
