default(see the list)
To start the App Review process, visit the App Review tab in your app's dashboard.
We're working hard to reduce wait times across review, and are now completing Messenger bot reviews in 3 business days. App Review for Facebook Login, Pages API, and Groups API is currently taking an average of 7 weeks including Business Verification. We hope to reduce this wait time significantly in the coming weeks.
To minimize the risk of getting rejected, ensure you have a valid use case. We encourage you to provide high quality instructions for us to reproduce the experience, as well as a screencast that clearly demonstrates the end-to-end experience. If your app is server-to-server and has no user interface, refer to our Server-to-Server Apps document for App Review instructions.
Read our blog posts for important information on updates to our Marketing API, our Lead Ads Retrieval API, and changes to associated permissions. For some permissions, Business Verification and a contract are necessary in addition to App Review.
Additionally, we're announcing a new permission
publish_video for Live Video API. This replaces
publish_actions, which was deprecated for new apps and has been deprecated for existing apps as of August 1, 2018. You can read more information on the Live Video API documentation.
