New Delhi: Facebook for iOS has been bumped up to version 5.6, giving users the ability to update their cover photos on the go. The ability to set cover images on Facebook has been one of the more significant changes on Facebook in recent times. iPhone users can now take a new cover photo or pick one from their gallery.
Next up is group messaging, another popular feature. With this update, Facebook says it will take lesser taps to start one. Those looking for group conversations are in luck, too, as the update has made it easier to name and find group conversations.
The updated app is currently up for download on the App Store. The Facebook iOS app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. To be able to use this app, users will require devices running iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimised for iPhone 5.
The Facebook app on iOS devices allows users to see what their friends are up to on the social network. They can share updates, photos and videos too. In addition to that, they can get notifications each time a friend comments or likes their posts. Then there is the ability to initiate group messages. They can also play games and use their favorite apps.
Earlier in December last year, Facebook released its Photo Sync feature for the iOS and Android versions of its app. It basically makes it easier to share images. This feature lets your phone sync photos automatically to a private album on the web. Whenever you want to share an image, just pick and post the desired image, which will then be viewable by your friends on Facebook.
Facebook stated on its blog: "We began testing photo sync in August and will continue to make it available to more people."
