Great news! Facebook has added chat to it’s official Android App. I heard that they had done this a few weeks ago but I just got around to testing it out on my Nexus 1. I’m impressed with the utility of the feature. It seems to work quickly.
If someone initiates a chat online it doesn’t notify me on my phone which is lame but when I started a conversation on the app and then returned to my home screen, I did get a notification when my friend replied to my chat.
Give a shot and let us know what you think. To see more screenshots visit our Facebook Photo Album.
