Facebook updated to 1.5, FINALLY gets Facebook Chat, Push Notifications

It seems the Facebook for Android application has finally become all-encompassing, with the long-awaited features of chat and push notification finally making their way onto the Android platform. This is certainly a welcome addition to the Android application, as the lack of these features have been a gripe of many Android users for a long time. After spending a few minutes with the application, both the chat integration and the notification features seem to be done pretty well.

Check out the screens below to preview the changes, or just head over to the market and update the app to test it out for yourself. Not using the Facebook app yet? Is the addition of these features enough to convince you to start/switch from a 3rd party application? Sound off below!
