Following earlier Facebook Mobile updates for Android, which mostly included feature enhancements all the time, Facebook's latest update, which was released just recently, finally features the long time awaited support for Facebook Chat - allowing to chat with friends right from the Android smartphone and even includes a background mode which allows to receive chat messages while using other applications, as well as push notifications. Facebook for Android is a pretty complete mobile client now which makes it easy to stay connected friends and followers.

Facebook for Android allows to share status updates right from the homescreen, check out News Feed, reviewing upcoming Events, as well as looking at friends' walls and user info, upload photos, share links and check and reply to Inbox messages.

In addition to the two new features, Facebook Chat and push notifications, Facebook for Android v1.5 also contains various bug fixes which Facebook hasn't detailed yet. Still not supported is the video upload but this seems to be the last major feature Facebook Mobile for Android is now missing.

Facebook for Android 1.5 is now available free of charge from the Android Market and is said to support all Android 1.5 and higher. However, push notifications are said to work on Android 2.2 and higher smartphones only!

Cheers ~ Arne
