Facebook is such a huge social media platform that it needs no introduction. Everyone knows what Facebook is and this speaks volumes about the quality of its services. Nonetheless, the reason why Facebook is making headlines today is because a brand-new APK which sports the “188.8.131.52.105 beta” version number has been released and today we are going to go over what features it contains.
Facebook 184.108.40.206.105 Beta APK
The first thing we need to mention about the new update is that it was released in the form of APK. In case you didn’t know, APK stands for “Android Package Kit” and as we can tell from the name, the new update is exclusive to Android users.
The reason why app developers release APK versions of their updates before launching them to the general public is because they want beta testers to see if any issues or malfunctions pop up. However, this doesn’t usually happen and beta testers just get to see what the new features do ahead of everyone else.
Improved Stability and Performance
Considering the fact that Facebook has over 2.19 billion active users, the developers are under constant pressure to make sure that the app runs without issues. No one likes app using apps that lag or randomly crash and Facebook’s developers guarantee that never happens by constantly releasing software tweaks and bug fixes.
Software Tweaks and Bug Fixes
Even though the new APK update doesn’t come with any groundbreaking features, it does introduce a handful of software tweaks and bug fixes that improve Facebook’s overall stability and performance. Furthermore, the new APK is currently available for beta testers. We should note that becoming a Facebook beta tester doesn’t require anything else than an Android smartphone and creating a special account on the Facebook Beta Program page.
