Facebook Pages Manager debuted quietly last month, with more widespread availability hitting after several days. Just over a month later, in its first major update (to version 1.1), the fan page management tool has gotten three new features: post promotion, post scheduling, and event creation.

The new features are essentially just what they sound like, and – for all intents and purposes – match their counterparts in Facebook's web interface.

It's nice to finally have Facebook pay at least a little attention to its mobile apps for a change. Today, the social networking giant is rolling out an incremental update that brings a couple of new features. Of course, there's the big one: remember that new voice messaging thing that Messenger got? Now the regular app has it, too.

Here's the full changelog:

What's in this version:

• Open and view photos faster
• Share your friends' stories to timelines, pages and groups
• Send voice messages when you have more to say

The bulk of the new changes will likely be of little consequence, but if you've ever been mildly frustrated by your inability to share a friend's posts to different pages or groups, your life will get just a smidge easier.

It's hard to argue that Google hasn't been a significantly different company under Larry Page's leadership. If nothing else, it has certainly become more directly competitive. Mountain View has generally (though not always ) preferred to be passive in its approach to other companies, allowing the product to speak for itself (whether for good or ill), rather than outright antagonize others. Apparently all that reservation was just saving up for when Page would take the helm and let the zingers fly.

It's nearly that time: the biggest awards show in movies—and in media in general—is set to begin in a little more than a month from now. The Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, but you can download the official Oscars app right now. The surprisingly-well-made-for-a-TV-network piece of software comes loaded with features, including news, photos, videos, and a comprehensive list of nominees for all categories. You can even view the trailers for each movie directly within the app.

A few days ago, Facebook quietly released its Pages Manager app for Android to the Play Store. The app, which had been making iOS-toting page managers' lives easier for quite some time, was a welcome addition, save for one thing: it could only be installed in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, leaving US users in the dark.

It appears that's changed today. The Pages Manager app, in an update too small to warrant a change log, opened up to those in the US.

Yesterday, Facebook rolled out a big update to its Messenger Android app, but as it turns out, it was only a small part of what the social network had in store for us. On the same day, the company also quietly released Facebook Pages Manager to the Play Store - an application iOS users have been enjoying since the first half of last year.

As a Facebook Page manager for Android Police, I immediately wanted to take it out for a spin but was forced to put the plan on hold because the app is actually not available in the U.S.

Alright, Google. It's time to stop leaving your VoIP service to languish on the vine. Facebook has released a double-whammy of big news bits. For starters, today the social network is rolling out an update to its Messenger app that will allow users to send each other short, recorded audio clips. It's voicemail for the 21st century, if such a thing can even exist without being horrible. And, really, this sounds like it's not.

Facedroid is an app that ambitiously set out to give users a more powerful, functional Facebook experience. Until now, though, it was only available for Android tablets.

In a substantial update to version 2.52 today, that changed – the new update finally brings Facedroid to your phone. The phone interface, as you may expect, looks to bring the same functionality users have come to know and love from the tablet version.

Quickly, repeatedly, with trash talk and/or teabagging a high probability. That said, if you're keen to give it a try, popular Facebook FPS UberStrike is now available on the Google Play Store. The popular free-to-play game has amassed over a million likes on Facebook, which serves as the browser-based platform for PC gamers.

We've known it's coming for a while and, per today's announcement, it will finally be here soon: Facebook's revamp of its Android app that will bring a proper, native UI as opposed to the mostly HTML5-based web viewer that's been powering the application for so long. The result is photos, the news feed, and timelines will load at least twice as fast, according to the company.

The company touts speed as the big improvement here, and it's sorely needed.
