Facebook tests new features in the Android app. Now Facebook for Android opens the links in the app itself without resorting to the browser. In this way we gain a lot of comfort.
With great speed, Facebook opens the links that our friends share within the app itself. It also gives the option to share it, copy the link, save it to read later or even open it in the usual browser.
The functionality saves us from opening the usual browser and, therefore, opening any link much faster. From this we can navigate although our browser will open.
This is currently a function in testing that only certain users are testing although it is expected that it will reach everyone after testing. It really is something very useful and that Twitter should copy in its Android app With this we achieve a very appreciable convenience on the mobile.
We don't know if Google likes this move that prevents you from using Android's default browser,which is usually your Google Chrome. Let's hope that even though Google doesn't like it, it doesn't ban this cool feature on Facebook for Android. As we said, other apps should copy this method to open the links in the app itself.
Soon all users with Facebook for Android will enjoy the new functionality that they are gradually rolling out.
