Latest Facebook update breaks Search bar and comments on Android tablets


Facebook has just released a fresh update for its Android application on mobile devices, a good reason for users to get excited for the new features the developers would bring.

Unfortunately, this time Facebook's update not only lacks any new features, but it breaks some of the existing ones. There's one things that kind of limits the disaster, as the update has been pushed to Android tablets, so you won't experience these issues on your smartphone.

So, after the update released on December 8, we've noticed that the Search bar doesn't appear anymore. Another major issue is the fact that you can't view comments under Facebook posts. In the meantime, Facebook seems to have solved this bug on some tablets, but we're not sure it works for everyone.

There are plenty of reviews in the Google Play store reporting these issues, as well as the fact that after the update Facebook tends to crash quite a lot on Android tablets.



Obviously, since the application received so many negative reviews on Google Play store, we can safely assume that Facebook has acknowledged these issues and, hopefully, will offer a fix sooner rather than later.
