Facebook for Android



The excellent social network always on your Android device


Rate this App

Facebook is the official Android app for the iconic original social network par excellence. Once again, this app is here to simplify your Facebook experience by providing all your favorite features from one spot.

Essentially, this Facebook app has all the same features as its original browser version, the only main difference you'll notice is that you can't play Facebook games on it.

That said, gaming aside, you'll get all the same updates from friends and family; browse your timeline, upload and save photos, change your status, comment and the whole lot -- from anywhere.

One of the best features of this official Facebook app is the option to share all kinds of content directly from your smartphone. You can upload photos and videos straight from your gallery directly onto your Facebook account.

Facebook for Android is truly a must-have app for anyone that's fairly active on the world's #1 social network. Albeit, it does come with a single (but major) setback. You cannot access your Facebook direct messages from this app, but rather, you'll have to go the extra mile and download Facebook's fully independent Messenger app (also on Uptodown) in order to check your Facebook messages from your smartphone.

Facebook aims to compete with Twitch with its own live streaming service

In January this year, we were introduced to Facebook Gaming, the platform for creating live video content that aims to rival other similar services like Twitch, YouTube Gaming, and Mixer.
