Take your best shot — of yourself. Facebook for Android has been updated with support for your Android device’s front-facing camera, meaning you can now shoot and share self-portraits inside the application.
The new version of Facebook for Android, version 1.9.7 to be exact, dropped late Thursday. The small refresh brings you the front-facing camera button, a spruced up messaging experience, faster login and navigation (one can only hope), and security and bug improvements.
On the messaging front, Facebook for Android introduces most of the same features recently added to Facebook’s dedicated messaging app. Now you can switch between conversations, include friends of friends in threads, share bigger photos, and see who’s available — just as you already could in Facebook Messenger for iPhone and Android. Hooray for consistency.
Facebook for Android 1.9.7 is available now for devices running Android 2.2 (Froyo) and up.
