Version 6.0

Released Feb 3, 2020 | Available until May 5, 2022

In addition to the changes described below, we are deprecating a number of endpoints as part of our ongoing commitments to privacy and security. These deprecations apply to version 6.0+ immediately and will apply to all versions on May 5, 2020.

Messenger

This change applies to v6.0+

Webhook Event: messages - Adjusted the way attachments type fallback and image with a sticker are sent.

Breaking Change

This change applies to v6.0+ and will apply to all versions on June 30, 2020.

/{conversation-id}/messages - This endpoint is being deprecated. For sending messages use the Send API.

Page Public Metadata Access

This change applies to all versions.

We have introduced a new reviewable feature named Page Public Metadata Access. Page Public Metadata Access allows read-only access to the Pages Search API as well as a set of Page fields and edges that would normally require the Page Public Content Access feature. Apps that have requested only these fields and edges on Pages in the past have been automatically approved for Page Public Metadata Access and will lose approval for Page Public Content Access on May 3, 2020.

Apps affected by this change will not lose any functionality and will not require any code changes.

SDKs

Facebook SDK for Android v6.0 and Facebook SDK for iOS v6.0 call version 6.0 of the Graph and Marketing APIs by default.

User Node

This change applies to v6.0+.

The GET /{user-id}/promotable_domains edge has been deprecated.

Marketing API

Released Feb 3, 2020 | Available until Sep 28, 2020

For Marketing API, v6.0, there are no new features or deprecations. We continue to encourage ads developers to migrate calls to version 6.0 in advance of the version 5.0 deprecation on September 28, 2020.
