Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is making Android a high priority on his radar.
This week, reports have surfaced that Facebook is asking employees to stop taking their iPhones to work. Although this reality hasn’t been confirmed, it appears that Facebook is trying to give Android it’s full attention.
Just days after Facebook refreshed it’s painfully slow iOS app, Android fans are longing from some love from the world’s biggest social network.
“In order to test our mobile products employees need access to specific devices to test on different platforms (iOS, Android),” a spokesman for Facebook tells the LA Times. “This is obviously different from testing on the Web (where it doesn’t matter what kind computer you have).”
Facebook is on a mission to improve its Android app, going so far as to order employees to leave their iPhones at home and use the rival platform to get more familiar with it.
Facebook’s representative says that the company often reminds “employees that they can change from iPhone to Android or Android to iPhone.”
