Facebook has issued a small update to its Android app tonight, allowing users to change cover photos from their devices. This eliminates an often-unwanted step of having to upload a photo separately to an album and applying it as a cover photo.

Again, not a huge feature but certainly appreciated. We’d love Facebook to redesign the app or, barring that, improve the performance of the one we have. But the company clearly has different priorities.

Download Facebook for Android.

    Slightly unrelated: FB Messenger for Android, is anyone else still getting the “SMS/MMS” setting for this app? I’m using a Galaxy Nexus and I haven’t seen the SMS setting in the app since I’ve updated my phone to JellyBean.

      i wouldnt suggest u use facebook application any other than facebook use.
      Look at their permission allowance. they are already stealing so much information. your location, you phone number, your country. even after you turn all those off it still collects all that.

    “not a huge feature but certainly appreciated” That’s right … but how do we do it ? I can see the option to change my profile picture (which is not a new option), but I cannot find how to change the cover picture.

    I wish they’d fix the “feature” that asks me every time I launch the app whether or not I want to add my contacts to Facebook. Obnoxious.

    Completely agree with the “adding phone contacts” problem, though I think that should be fixed with a very minor update. My biggest problem is the continual “network error”/failure to load the rest of my feed.

    …Actually, that might not be a problem at all. Because my feed and accompanying photos fail to load the majority of time, it’s actually caused me to get so frustrated with the app that I rarely use it anymore. Instead, I am forced to actually interact with my friends in the real world. Thanks, Facebook!
