So this has been spoken about before but about 2weeks ago. Since the latest Beta update I'm now receiving the same notification of "Facebook features updating" I can close the notification by going in to the play store but it comes back after 30mins or so. Anyone els having this issue since the new update?

It seems that's the fix. I uninstalled Facebook then reinstalled it, now no more update notifications. Thanks @Andy3

How did you uninstall Facebook? 

All I can do is disable Facebook, it doesnt allow me to uninstall. I've been trying that since getting the phone because Facebook is such a huge battery suck.

Got to apps in settings find Facebook click it. At the top click the 3 dots uninstall updates

That just uninstalls updates though, doesn't uninstall Facebook completely. 

Got my hopes up 😉

The only way to completely uninstall facebook is to go back to android 9. Unfortunately Facebook is backed into android 10 at this time. You can always uninstall the updates and disable facebook

Facebook was forced on Android 9 too, and 8.

I've never been able to uninstall it on my S8, S9 or S10 on any version.

Disabling it works a little, but theres still other Facebook related apps that seem to continue running regardless of how many apps with Facebook in their name I disable.
