The Facebook app has disappeared from the Microsoft Store

If you're a fan of the Facebook app on Windows 10, you're in for some bad news. The app is no longer available, as spotted by Aggiornamenti Lumia. It's not searchable in the Microsoft Store, and if you've got a direct link to the listing, it shows that the app is unavailable.

 

That's about all that we know. The change could be temporary with a new version on the way, although it does seem likely that the app would be removed completely while waiting for an update. Still, Facebook doesn't seem to be abandoning Windows 10 completely, since Messenger and Instagram are both still available. In fact, Instagram was just added to the Store as a PWA.

 

Presumably, the app will continue to work for the foreseeable future, as long as you already have it. For the best experience, you'll want to use the browser though. That's what most people do anyway, as is evident by Facebook's decision to remove the app.

 

We've reached out to both Facebook and Microsoft for comment, so if we hear anything, we'll let you know.

That leaves only Messenger app and it's beta for now. And the newly updated PWA-based Instagram.

But, I hope that there will be a developed PWA version for Facebook.

It was announced two weeks ago or more that it was going to be removed on Feb 28th.

There is both beta and non-beta. They are both are currently identical in terms of GUI and features. Any differences right now are under the hood.
