Facebook for Android may be in the Google Play Store's top ten, but it's not the only app to get attention from the social media giant: Facebook has released an update to the Facebook Messenger app as well. The new version boasts a tweaked UI and has made it simpler and faster to start up both one-on-one and group conversations. Better support for Ice Cream Sandwich devices and a number of bugfixes are also included. The update largely matches one that came to iOS back on March 19th, which featured a similar set of visual and speed enhancements. If you'd like to take a look at the updated app yourself — and you have a device running Android 2.2 or higher — it's available now in the Google Play Store.
