Back in April, we heard about Microsoft’s interest in recruiting some Windows Phone users to help the company beta test the latest changes to its own Facebook app. Today, we get news of something similar going on, but this time involving Android and the Facebook app developed by the company itself.

Only then will you finally be able to grab the latest Facebook beta, and can start providing feedback.

Update: Here’s the announcement, with signup links.
