Facebook’s standalone Events app that launched in October on iOS is launching on Android today. The app is live on Google Play. The Facebook Events app helps you browse nearby happenings, see the dates of your upcoming Facebook Events as well as imported calendars and aggregates wall posts and alerts from Events to declutter your main app’s notifications.
- Catch up on the latest events activity, events your friends have recently responded to and updates from hosts.
- Find events happening near you on an interactive map and filter based on time and event category.
- Get event recommendations based on what’s popular with your friends, things you’ve been to in the past and Pages you like.
- Choose to add calendars from your phone to see all of your plans in one place.
- Opt-in to get notifications about your upcoming events so you know if details change.
