The older updates which arrived last week came with the same changelog and is as follows:

• Improvements for reliability and speed

So, the social networking giant is keeping the changes under the wrap, however, it is releasing the updates on an alternate day basis, which is brilliant as many companies won’t do this for their applications. Though the update is for the alpha version, these changes will reflect on the official app in coming updates.

As said earlier, the update is an alpha one and you need to enroll in the Alpha program to download the updated application. So, head over to Facebook’s Google groups page and enroll yourself as an alpha tester. However, if you face any difficulties while enrolling in the program, you can download the apk from several sources such as apkmirror.com or APKPolice.com and install it on your smartphone.
