Facebook Launches Its Standalone Events App


Facebook launched the “Events” app on iOS in October, saying an Android version would be landing soon. Well, it seems that day has arrived, with Events launching on Android.

The app  sees Facebook harness the power of its Events feature to give users more social discovery options, will be available on Google Play soon, according to TechCrunch.

When you launch the Events app, you  see where your friends are going , follow up on events announced by Pages you’ve liked, and view updates from events you’ve already signed up to via the home feed.

The app has a clean interface which offers several distinct sections, alongside the home tab, that can be accessed by clicking the corresponding icons at the bottom of the display.

Tap on the magnifying glass option and you’ll see  an explore tab, this allows you to discover events by browsing through recommendations based on time, location and your interests. Here you’ll also see am interactive map that displays events happening around your location. Additionally, at the top of the section is a search tab that allows you to search for events in other cities.

To transform you into the ultimate outgoing events-seeker, the app has its very own calendar, that lets you easily organize your schedule. You can even add calendars from your phone and view them alongside your Facebook events, in order to avoid any potential mix-ups. Integrating calendars may even influence you to ditch your smartphone’s native calendar app in favor of Events, if Facebook has its way.

“Whether you’re looking for something to attend this weekend or just wondering what’s happening in your area, Events will help get you there,” said Aditya Koolwal, product manager, Facebook, in a blog post announcing the app.
