Research In Motion keeps showing love to OS 5 devices. For the last two months, the beta version of Facebook for BlackBerry v2.0 was only available for OS 6 devices. Yesterday, we seen the launch of version 126.96.36.199 that brought a new homescreen icon & support for OS 5.
Some of the other updated features & tweaks include:
- Facebook Chat Enhancements: While chatting with your friends, you will now know when they’re typing a message by the visual cue of “is typing a message”. As well, you can filter your Online Contacts to quickly find a specific friend and start a Chat message.
- View Mutual Friends and Friends List: The ability to view Mutual Friends and Friends List is available from the Info tab on Profiles. With the new Mutual Friends feature, you can discover which of your friends you and another user have in common. And now you can also view a user’s Friends List from their Profile (dependent on Privacy Settings of the user).
- Enhanced Integration with BlackBerry Native Apps: Facebook v2.0 is even more integrated with BlackBerry smartphone native apps than ever. You can now click on PINs, Phone Numbers, and email addresses displayed in Wall posts, messages or the Info tab, and either perform the respective action (e.g., place a call) or save the information to your BlackBerry Contacts application.
