Facebook Android App Upgrade Includes Places & Groups

Facebook Android AppThe popular Android Facebook app has finally been updated to include Places and Group functionality that has been available on the iPhone for a while now.

Android Facebook users will now be able to use their handset's GPS signal to check-in at their current location with Facebook.

The new app update will also enable Android users to receive the new Places Deals service announced earlier today at Facebook's mobile event.

"Traditionally the Android app has always been a little bit behind," said Mark Zuckerberg. "We didn't have a full team working on it, but now we're back on track."

The Facebook app update will be a welcome boost for many Android users who've long bemoaned how poor the Facebook portal is when compared to the iPhone version.

The new Android Facebook app will be available to download from the Android Market shortly.
