Facebook announced a standalone app for its events service called ‘Events from Facebook’ in October. The app essentially provides users with all the event-related features from the social networking site in one place. Till now, the app was only available on iOS but on Tuesday, the social networking giant has finally released Events from Facebook on Android.
Like its iOS counterpart, Events from Facebook for Android gives you a quick glance at what you have coming up today. You can also see what events your friends are participating in, and instantly find new things to do, as you explore events near you, no matter where you are. It lets you keep track of all your upcoming plans, with important information about each event being easily accessible. For every individual event, you’re told which of your friends are attending.
All the things you love about events on Facebook are still the same but with this app you can have it all in one place. See the latest events activity, discover new things to do with friends and quickly get to event info. Events works seamlessly with Facebook, so your friends can see what you’re interested in and what you’ve invited them to, even if they don’t have the app, Facebook says in the app’s description on Google Play.
Since this works seamlessly with Facebook itself, your friends will see what you’re interested in and what you’ve invited them to even if they don’t have the dedicated Events app. You can see events near you on an interactive map and filter the results based on time and event category. You will get event recommendations based on what your friends find popular, where you’ve been in the past, and Pages you like. You can add calendars from your phone so you’ll have all your plans in one place. And opt-in notifications let you know if details about your upcoming events change.
