Facebook for Android update brings new photo features

Facebook has released a new version of its Android app with some photo-centric features. The update brings ability to delete or edit albums, comment on photos and untag from photos.

Users can now comment on any post with an image as well. The update also adds some new options for uploading, organizing and sharing photos. Multiple images can be uploaded simultaneously, which is ideal for creating a quick collection. Earlier users could only create albums with the app, now with the new update, they can edit and delete albums. The feature has been available for desktop and iOS users already.

There is also an option for users to untag themselves from photos. Those who manage groups can also use the new Facebook for Android app to pin and unpin photos in the group. According to reports some users have been given access to a flatter UI, although the new UI hasn't been rolled out to everyone just yet.

Facebook has also announced 15 second auto play video ads which will start playing videos without sound as they appear on screen and will stop as soon you scroll past it. Users can tap on the video to expand it into a full screen. Facebook says it will ensure video ads that appear on the website “are as good as other content people see in their News Feeds.” Facebook has also stated that users will be able to start viewing these new ads “over the next few months”.
