An annoying omission of the built-in Facebook Messaging app is the inability to send image attachments. It seems the latest Beta Official Facebook app for Windows Phone 8 will be addressing much of our woes in this area.
Version 22.214.171.124, released today, adds support for image attachments in messaging, multiple photo upload, save/share photos, and improvements to navigation and also inline tagging.
The app also offers the usual performance improvements.
