Facebook has released a major update for its iOS app, which brings the status icons to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Facebook had introduced status icons in the web version in April. Facebook status icons are like emoticons, which show what you’re feeling, watching, reading, drinking, listening to, eating, or playing. 

Here’s what’s new in Facebook 6.2:

• Add icons to status updates to show what you’re feeling, reading, watching and more (English only)
• Easily change who can see something you’ve shared
• Start a new conversation with photos you receive in messages
• Bug fixes


To access the status icons, tap on the smiley button next to the camera button while composing the status update.

You can download the update via the App Store app or download the app for free using this direct iTunes link.
