Windows 8.1 normally updates apps in the background. This means that your Facebook app may have already been updated if you are using the OS. Some of the features that you can expect to see in the updated app include a smileys sticker pack which comes with a sizable collection.

When it comes to user interactions, you can search through thread names to determine which contacts you wish to include in your conversation. The search giant also promises that with the update, users will finally be able to get old messages and old stories out of your way and get ascertained fresh content on your News Feed.

The social network has also included many rudimentary functionalities into the Windows 8.1 app, allowing you to edit photos, copy post links and adjust post privacy settings without any qualms. Thanks to the many new features and a somewhat improved outlook, the updated app will be more satisfying experience for Windows 8.1 users.
