Facebook for BlackBerry 2.0 Now Has Facebook Chat

Don’t stay stuck to your BBM. There are a lot more things you can do with your BlackBerry you see. Like making calls, sending messages (text messages that is) and with the Facebook for BlackBerry app coming out with a version 2.0 beta, you can also stay connected with your friends on Facebook.

Facebook Chat ftw

Facebook Chat ftw


The most important addition to the previous Facebook app is that users now have access to Facebook Chat, which supposedly was long overdue. Anyway, that’s not all. The User Interface has undergone a revamp as well. The notifications on this app are pretty similar to BlackBerry’s native drop down notification system. The drop down system is also being implemented on Facebook 

So apart from the addition of the Chat feature, it’s quite apparent that the beta version of Facebook has improved more on UI changes which will add more value when BlackBerry releases their latest firmware upgrade, the OS 7. For now, you can log onto the BlackBerry Beta Zone to download their app but it’s only compatible with the OS 6.0 devices but there are chances that it will be backward compatible with OS 4.6 sooner or later.
