I just updated my Nokia Lumia 520 to the 8.1 dev preview and I have noticed that I can no longer get Facebook messages through text messages, as well as not being able to switch to Facebook as an option when replying, or sending a message to a contact. After the install of 8.1 it seems that I need an facebook app to do this.

Does anybody know if there is a setting that I may have missed, or if this is intended, or just not available in the current build? It would be a real shame to lose such a feature, I have come to rely on it very often and found that it makes keeping in touch with my friends and family quite easy.

The facebook chat option was removed. You can use the Facebook app to chat with your Facebook friends.

EDIT: The chat option has been removed from the Facebook app. You need to install the Facebook Messenger app.


Facebook integration was removed in Windows Phone 8.1. One of the things that 8.1 users miss. To see what other things we miss then follow this thread
