Meta will push updates on locations and devices. So nobody knows when they are going to push an update for your device and location. Maybe you are the next one on the list. However, all users may get it in the month. Please make sure to turn on automatic updates in the Play Store. That way once the update is available, it’s gonna install automatically. So you don’t need to check for updates manually each time.
