Facebook’s Windows app returns to Microsoft Store after withdrawing in 2020 / Digital Information World



Facebook and Microsoft are one of the biggest tech companies out there. These two companies have always outdone themselves in every area in which they have a hand. Innovation and new features for the well-being of their users have helped them reach the level they have reached today. No one has been able to match their success, especially with the new and improved features they come up with from time to time which are an example of this.

Facebook was one of the 10 best free apps on the Microsoft store. Facebook removed its app from Microsoft Windows 10 in February last year, many believe the reason was that the app on Windows 10 was not being properly maintained, updated, and the number of users was dropping by day by day. Facebook and Microsoft have both informed their users to use the app through the web. It was recently reported that the app has returned to Microsoft after a one-year hiatus.

Even though the app isn’t like it used to on Windows 10, it still looks great. The app returns this time around as a PWA. PWA is the abbreviation for Progressive web app. It is a type of application software developed with the aim of providing a platform that includes the operation of the application on both desktop and mobile services. The app has been included in the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser.

Facebook says the app on Windows 10 is a beta version of Facebook that has included all of the latest features released to the app so far. Facebook even allowed Windows 10 users to give feedback if something went wrong by selecting the “Report a problem” option from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner. The beta version of the app is available on the Microsoft Store.

The app supports light and dark themes with a very attractive format.

Overall, Windows 10 users are relieved that the app is now available on the operating system, as many people prefer to use this version rather than the web. We hope that Facebook will no longer remove its application from Windows 10. Microsoft and Facebook are known to make the comfort of their users their priority and this decision shows just that.
