Facebook tests new interface in Android application – Apps

Facebook introduced a new look for its app in April this year and may have news soon. That’s because the social network is testing small changes among a group of users of its version for Android.

The information is Android Police, which published some images of the test. They show a change in the application’s navigation bar, which now has fewer icons and has been moved to the bottom of the screen.

One of the changes involves the Facebook logo in the navigation bar. The icon, which appears next to the shortcuts for the news feed and the notification screen, takes users to the menu screen that is now accessed by the hamburger icon (the three horizontal lines).

And despite having the same options, the look of the menu page has also been updated. Instead of the white background, the section started to have a gradient blue. Items such as Groups, Events and Memories are displayed in a white rectangle.

Still according to the Android Police, tests are being done with users on version 246.0.0.49.121. However, not everyone who has this version has received the new look.

If it becomes official, the change should not cause Facebook to discard the FB5, as the new interface for iPhone, Android and the web was called. It offers a cleaner look, more speed and the option of a night mode for the app.
