I think I speak for a lot of people when I say an official Facebook chat client has been a long time coming. There are certainly good alternatives, but wouldn’t it be nice if Facebook could just integrate it into their official app? Well if you enter the Market and check your Facebook app for an update now, the wait is finally over. Facebook for Android version 1.5.0 is live, and not only includes FB chat, but push notifications and multiple bug fixes.
From what I’ve played with, it seems to work well and looks great. To be taken straight to Facebook for Android in the Market now, click on the direct link from your Android device, or scan the QR code below.
