Default How to get new Facebook App UI

How to get the new FB UI
first opt out of beta programme..(if you arent a tester ignore this step)
link for beta is here
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!fo...d-beta-testers
then join alpha..
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!fo...-alpha-testers
after joining..uninstall Facebook app..reboot phone...
now search for facebook app in play store and boom...you will have the latest there
If you still have old ui clear the app from recent apps and start it

Did you leave the beta test? And clicked on bit.ly link to become alpha tester?

I've been in both groups for like 2 months. Still no updated UI. Search a bit, the new UI is rolled out server side, from Facebook. There's no way to actually "get" it. You get it when they roll out the update to you...

ROM: All of them at least once
KERNEL: Bricked Stable
RECOVERY: TWRP 2.3.6.4

If you are alpha tester you get it by default no need to wait

I have been an alpha tester for a while now. Just followed instructions again. Left beta. Joined alpha. Uninstall app. Reboot. Install. Still old UI...
Hmm any ideas??

What version are you on. I was on updated to 9.0.0.18. If I closed the app from recent apps and tried to reopen it it would crash. I would have to clear data to get it to work again. All on stock non rooted nexus.
