Check Out Facebook’s Upcoming Redesign For Android
Facebook is hard at work on delivering a much-needed redesign to its Android app, and we have an early glimpse at what the new design will look like thanks to these leaked screenshots. It’s much “flatter” and cleaner than the existing design — a lot like the new Facebook Messenger app — and it makes the app look much more likes its counterparts for iOS and Windows Phone.
These screenshots were obtained by Android Police, which notes that this is a very early build of Facebook 4.0, and could still change significantly before the update makes it way into public hands. Nevertheless, it still gives us a good idea of what Facebook is working on with regards to its Android redesign.
As you can see, the “Status,” “Photo,” and “Check-In” buttons have been moved to the bottom of the app, and there are new icons for navigating between your news feed, friends list, messages, and more at the top of the app. It looks pretty similar to Facebook’s new iOS 7 app, but it certainly doesn’t look out of place on Android.
In fact, it’s about time the Android app was overhauled; the current design has been around a long, long time, and it’s starting to look very outdated.
You can download the Facebook 4.0 APK from Android Police by following the source link below, but bear in mind that Facebook changes all happen on the server side, so even if you install the new release, you may not see the new design until it’s ready to public consumption.
If you do get the new design, be sure to let us know if you find anything new by leaving us a comment below.
