The Facebook for Android app is probably gearing for a new update in the coming days according a few leaked screenshots. The screenshot mentions the version number of the app to be 126.96.36.199.2 which indicates a major revamp. It is also revealed that the app will now contain all features like messages, news feed, events etc accessible right within one screen instead of having to open a slide out box on the left.
There’s every possibility that most of these features might not make its way to the final version of the app, but we do get a hint of what Facebook wants to achieve with a new UI refresh. The standard Google design guidelines are not being used here as the hamburger menu is clearly missing from the screenshots. The Facebook Messenger app recently received an update bringing a new UI, so the Facebook app could get a similar refresh, which will be more significant in comparison to the standalone messenger app. The apk of the revamped version of Facebook is available for download from the source link below.
