Facebook released an updated app for Android devices Wednesday, with the changes making it much more like the social network’s iPhone app.

In a post on the official Facebook blog, the social network said photos and albums now load twice as fast as they did in the previous Android app, and sharing photos, viewing comments, and editing captions is easier.

Messages and notifications are now easier to access, as they appear on the top of the screen, allowing users to read them and respond without leaving the page they’re on.

And much like the iPhone app, the new Android offering boasts a side menu that provides access to users news feeds, groups, games, and apps.
