Microsoft faced some hard time in getting proper apps from big companies for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8; however, Windows 10 Universal App Platform will change the entire scenario.
During Build 2016, it was announced that Windows 10 will have its native apps like Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram.
Previously, Windows 8 had the Facebook app on the Windows Store; however, it was about as bare-bones as you could get.
Now the Facebook app offers a full set of reactions, stickers to comments, and viewing trending topics. It gives up-to-date features for users. The latest OS from Microsoft it built on UWP, which means it has features like notifications pop-ups, live tiles, and sharing across apps, notes Facebook Newsroom.
One of the best features of the Facebook app may be its in-app browser, and it is a bit more powerful than the usual mobile varieties. More importantly, it supports multiple tabs.
Another important feature is added to the app. Users can open a link in the in-app browser and on hitting the back button would return to their feed. The browser tabs will remain lined up along the bottom. Which enable switching between Facebook and whatever listicle the user was reading. I work smoothly and quickly.
The Next Web notifies that the Messenger app offers stickers, which can be used in a group conversation and GIFs. Users can also view notifications in the Action Center and see unread messages in their Start Menu Live Tiles.
For few months, Instagram was in beta version, and now it will be rolled out for Windows 10 Mobile. Users are expecting the similar kind of app for the Windows tablet users, and could only hope that will arrive in near future.
Currently, Windows Store is offering the Facebook and Messenger as well as an update will also be rolled out later this year.
