Facebook to develop official app for Windows 8

Washington: Software giant Microsoft has reportedly confirmed that social media website Facebook will develop its official application for its latest version of OS Windows 8.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer made the announcement at the company’s annual developers conference in San Francisco but did not provide any specific release date, CBS News reports.

According to the report, a Facebook spokesperson said that the company will design the official app initially for the Windows 8 tablets likely with a fall release date. The report said that it is unclear why Microsoft took so long to offer a Facebook app on its devices despite having stakes in Facebook.

Ballmer said that Windows 8 will hit more than 100,000 apps within this month which will include Fipboard, and NFL Fantasy Football, the report added.
