Facebook maintain that it puts mobile first these days, and they appear to be putting their money where their mouth is.

Well, okay, not really. Where’s Graph Search on mobile?

Anyway, Facebook has launched a new update for its Android app that brings a handful of notable features.

For one, Facebook is giving Android users more control over who can see the things that they’ve posted. The first feature in the “what’s new” section on Google Play is “Easily change who can see something you’ve shared.”

Also included in the update is the ability to send multiple photos to users in a single message. This can be done by simply tapping the “+”.

For those using Facebook Home (which hasn’t been a huge hit for the company), you can now customize the app launcher by dragging apps you use the most to a new favorites tray. Facebook Home updates are included in Facebook for Android updates.

The update also includes various stability and memory improvements as well as bug fixes.
