Facebook app on Android gets its own browser


Facebook has introduced a new feature on its Android version of the app by bringing a native browser. This means that content which needs to be redirected to the device’s browser, can now be viewed directly within the app. The feature is being sent out with an OTA update to the Facebook app, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see the feature right away.

Once you open a web page with this new browser, the app allows you to copy the URL or share it in a new post. If you’re not fond of Facebook’s native browsing solution, you can turn it off by heading over to the settings and checking the “Always open links with external browser” button. Overall, it’s a pretty nifty solution to carry out browsing of your web links directly from the app rather than opening another application.

Do you like these new changes on the Facebook app? Let us know what you think.
