Facebook Chat for Windows Mobile Updated to v2.3.6

The ever-growing, ever-changing nature of Facebook, the world’s most popular social networking site, means that developers of associated applications have to release updates very often. One such app, Facebook Instant Messenger for Windows Mobile, has recently been refined to encompass the most recent additions to the website.

Although the changes are fairly minor, the constant developing attention focussed by XDA member blutz upon the application and the usefulness of the program itself make it worth taking a look at. Originally designed to allow smartphone users to use the site’s instant messaging capabilities on the move, the app has since grown and now supports status updates, notification and message indicators and mobile picture and video uploads. Facebook Instant Messenger even includes a CHome (Windows Titanium/Standard layout) plugin so that you can access your news feed without even launching a separate window.

You can give the application a try by following the download link in the application thread.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
