Microsoft launched a beta program for its Facebook Windows Phone 8 app in April, and the company is now removing the test tag and rolling it out to existing users this week. The new app has undergone a major redesign, with some new features for high-resolution photo support, post sharing, and the Facebook Timeline.

The refreshed UI closely aligns it to the familiar look and feel of the Facebook iOS and Android applications. Sliding to the right exposes a navigation bar and sliding to the left on the main screen will reveal the chat interface. Although the beta tag has been removed, Microsoft says it will continue to maintain the separate Facebook beta app which the firm says will allow users to "preview and provide direct feedback on future changes to the app."
