Facebook’s Instant Articles available on Android from today – Announcement


After several rounds of beta testing, social network Facebook’s Instant Articles is now available on Android. There’s already an iOS version.

According to an announcement on FB Media, anyone using FB for Android app can now read the 1000s of Instant Articles every day in News Feed from publishers worldwide.The blog post said:

Combined with our recent launch of Instant Articles to everyone on Facebook for iPhone, publishers can now deliver fast and immersive reading experiences to hundreds of millions of people daily across the two most popular mobile platforms in the world.

We’ve been beta testing Instant Articles for Android with a small group of people on Facebook for several weeks, and as we saw on iPhone, the faster, richer reading experience inspires people on Android to share Instant Articles with their friends more often than they do with standard web articles.

More than 350 publications around the world have already joined the Instant Articles program to date, & over 100 are already publishing daily — with more joining each day, FB said.
