Facebook is testing a news section for its mobile app

Last Updated on April 17, 2016

Facebook might be adding a new feature to its Android and iOS mobile app users sooner. Tom Critchlow (@tomcrichlow) posted images of the updates he received from his Android regarding this move to news headline shift.

Facebook confirmed to Mashable that it is testing the new, sectioned news feed, in addition to the current format, though it’s unclear if the feature will ever get an official launch.

“People have told us they would like options to see more stories on Facebook around specific topics they are interested in,” a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying. “So we have been testing a few feeds for people to view more and different stories from people and Pages based on topic areas,” the spokesperson added.

The sections appear at the bottom of the screen, accessible by tapping or swiping left or right. After tapping one of the sections, such as World & U.S. News, the news feed updates to news articles that are related to the topic.
