Facebook today rolled out a new update of its app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update touts full OpenTable integration,  meaning that users can now make restaurant reservations from within the Facebook app itself. They won’t have to leave the app, they don’t even have to launch a different app for restaurant reservations. Though that’s not all that this update has to offer, hashtag search support has also been included.

Making restaurant reservations through the new Facebook iOS app is very simple. Users just need to visit the Facebook Page of the restaurant they want to dine at, and then choose the date and time when they want to visit. After the user specifies the number of people that will make up the party, the app will display a list of available reservations. Reservations can only be made at those restaurants that participate with OpenTable in the U.S. Though it doesn’t matter if the user has an OpenTable account or not, they’ll be able to use the feature any way. In case the party can’t make it to the restaurant, it is possible to cancel the reservation through the app itself. The updated Facebook app is now available for download from the App Store.
