Whenever Android jumps version we look at each of the new features that the new variant includes. The point is that many of them are functions of new APIs that applications must adopt through updates.
It's over, after 10 years I uninstalled the mobile Facebook application
After ten years using it I decided to uninstall the Facebook application from my Android mobile. For now continue using the service. For now.
One of the most striking of Android 8 Oreo was the inclusion of notification channels. From that version of Android applications could not only send notifications, but they would do it by categories.
In this way, users could control whether they wanted them to arrive from one type but not another. For example, in a Twitter client we could choose notifications of direct messages, but not mentions.
How to set up notifications on Android 8 Oreo
Android 8 Oreo brings a renewed notification system with the highest customization capacity we've seen on a mobile. This is how they are configured.
One year after the launch of Android 8 Oreo and with Android 9 Pie already on the market the Facebook application for Android is updated with this function.
Facebook for Android is updated with notification channels
There are several users who are warning that the latest update of the Facebook application for Android is beginning to include notification channels. However it seems that it is not shown in all cases, perhaps because of some tests that Facebook is doing.
When it arrives it will allow those who use this application to have a very thorough control of the notifications that the app sends you to the phone. There is 18 different categories that we can activate or deactivate individually.
A week without notifications, this has been my experience
Notifications are the best of Android. I have spent a week without notifications on my mobile, and I have learned an important lesson.
Personally I am in favor of having the minimum notifications activated and in this case I think it would directly mark the option that the app would not send me any but if you see some important now you can select them.
To use them you have to use Android 8 or higher and have the Facebook version for Android 18.104.22.168.72. If they still do not appear you should clear the app cache and data if necessary.
