Facebook Home is now officially available to download on Google Play. Facebook Home is the mobile experience that puts your friends at the heart of your phone. From the moment you turn it on, you see a steady stream of friends’ posts and photos on your home screen. Upfront notifications and quick access to your essentials mean you’ll never miss a moment. And when you download Facebook Messenger, you can keep chatting with friends when you’re using other apps.
With Home, everything on your phone gets friendlier.
• Glance at your phone for the latest photos and posts from your friends
• With chat heads and Facebook Messenger, you can keep chatting when you’re using other apps
• See news as it happens with bigger, bolder notifications
• Get right to Facebook, Instagram and other essentials
Currently, the Facebook Home Android launcher is only available to users living in the U.S. and is supported by only a select few phones, including the Samsung GALAXY S4, GALAXY S3, HTC One, HTC One X, HTC One X+ and GALAXY Note II. But, it will be released on a wider range of smartphones and tablets later this year. Earlier this week, a pre-release version of Facebook Home APK was leaked onto the web.
As soon as you turn on your phone or press the home button, you see a stream of posts from your News Feed, so you always know what your friends are up to. Swipe through to see more, double tap to like a post, and comment right from cover feed. Cover Feed puts the spotlight on whatever friends are sharing now—photos, status updates, links and more.
Chat Heads and Messenger
Install Messenger to send and receive texts and Facebook messages from the same spot. Jump in and out of conversations while you do other things, like watch videos and browse the web. Reply right from chat heads, or move them around if you’re not ready to respond.
Notifications from Facebook appear right on your home screen and stick around until you need them. Open a notification with a tap or clear them away to see your cover feed.
Launch your favorite apps and post to Facebook from the same spot. You choose what’s on your app launcher—press and hold an app then drag it where you want it.
