Facebook Home for Android devices now official


Facebook Home app for Android devices

Facebook Inc has officially unveiled Facebook Home application for a limited number of Android-running devices. The application integrates perfectly with Facebook for Android and Facebook Messenger and has 4 major features: Cover feed, Chat Heads, Notifications and App Launcher.

  • Cover feed: Glance at your phone for photos and posts from your Facebook News Feed.
  • Chat heads: Send and receive texts and Facebook messages in one place. Open, close and drag chat heads around your screen to keep chatting while you’re using other apps.
  • Notifications: See news as it happens with bigger, bolder notifications on your home screen.
  • App launcher: Get right to your favorite apps and post to Facebook from the same place.

Facebook Home wont be available until April 12, when it will land on Google Play store but only for US users and for a limited number of devices (HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung GALAXY S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II). Also it is not compatible with any version of Android under 4.0.

The other way to enjoy Facebook Home experience is to buy the $99 HTC First smartphone at AT&T, which comes with the eco-system already pre-installed out of the box.
