Facebook brings colored backgrounds to statuses

Facebook logoAfter "the most requested Messenger feature ever" yesterday -- Group Video Chat -- Facebook now has another update.

This time around the social network is allowing users to change the background color of status updates. Before you get too excited, however, there are limitations aplenty to bear in mind.

The update is for mobile users only -- at the moment, at least. More than this, it's an option that is only available -- strangely -- to Android users. Gone are the days of dull black-on-white, as you can choose from one of seven colourful options instead. At the moment there is no way to choose colors of your own, but it is a step in the right direction for those looking for an extra level of customization.

In a statement to TechCrunch, Facebook says:

We’re rolling out a change to help people make their text posts more visual. Starting today, people can update the background color of their text-only posts on Android.

Facebook brings colored backgrounds to statuses

Colored backgrounds will be visible to iOS and desktop users, but only those with Android devices can create them.
