Official Facebook app for Windows 8 now available

facebook windows 8

All the way back in June Microsoft announced Facebook would be coming to Windows 8. Today the app has finally arrived in the Windows Store, but you can only download it if you have Windows 8.1 installed.¬†The app is everything you’d expect from Facebook. It looks and feels much like the website, but has been built more for touch.

With the official Facebook app you have the ability to set your status, upload photos, check-in, and more. There is a handy left panel that gives you quick access to different areas of Facebook, just like in the Windows Phone app. Facebook has also built-in some native Windows 8 features. You can use the charm menu to share something from anywhere to the Facebook app. The app also works with all of Windows 8.1 new Snap View sizes.

As mentioned above, you need to be running Windows 8.1 (Pro or RT) in order to download this app. Check out our article from earlier today to find out how to get Windows 8.1. If you do have 8.1 you can download Facebook for free below.
