I have a Nexus 4 and Facebook looks like the picture on the left; while on my Nexus 5, it looks amazing, like the picture on the right (with fixed tap and native Android version):

Ugly! Wow!

I tried re-installing the application and changing the device language with no luck. How can I get the Nexus 5 version?

It is called A/B testing. It is a part of Facebook test and targets few users. You cannot get that version, its Facebook who controls which user gets that and its basically random.


It is the new Facebook app design. You don't choose to have it and it is not tied to a apk, but rather to your account. At a certain time, when you connect your account on a device and if your account has the new design, the app will switch itself to its design, but not instantaneously.

  • My facebook account is already using the latest design for weeks now. However, the facebook on my nexus looks the old one. Commented Apr 18, 2014 at 12:46
