While it’s not as pronounced as yesterday’s Instagram update, Facebook today released a new version of its Android app with some new photo-centric features.
Firstly, you can now comment on any post with an image. It’s been available on the desktop version since last June and, perhaps inevitably, has become a platform for sharing memes. Now that the feature is available to Android users – it was patched into the iOS app five months ago – that volume should only increase in the weeks ahead.
Secondly, today’s update also adds some new options for uploading, organizing and sharing photos. You can now upload multiple images simultaneously – perfect for creating a quick collection – and also edit or delete albums.
It’s also now possible to untag yourself from photos, which should prove useful when you’re walking home from a party and already regretting some of your behavior. Android Police reports that some uses are also being treated to a flatter UI, although it doesn’t appear to be available to everyone just yet.
