Facebook finally removes Camera and Messaging shortcuts in latest update

Facebook remove camera and messaging shortcuts

It might have taken them a week or two to realize it was a bad idea, but Facebook has finally removed those annoying Camera and Messaging shortcuts from the Android app with the latest update. Sure it makes sense if you’re trying to force users to use Facebook more, but the shortcuts were overkill and redundant. It’s not all that hard to share a picture to Facebook from the stock camera or gallery. And Facebook has had a stand-alone Messenger app for quite a while, perfect for those that use Facebook as a primary communication.

If you haven’t already, head over to the Play Store and update to get rid of the extraneous icons. Or if you just couldn’t stand it and uninstalled, feel free to reinstall at will.
