Facebook Home Android App Released on Google Play (Video)

April 12, 2013

Facebook Home is now available for free on the Google Play store. Unfortunately, only a few Android smartphones support the social media themed home and lock screen replacement at this time. These devices include the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note II, HTC One X, HTC One X+ and HTC One. The HTC First Facebook phone was also released today with the software pre-loaded. Check out the promo video above, as well as screenshots and the list of features below.

Facebook Home 1.0 Features:
• 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

Install the Following Apps for the Full Home Experience:
• Facebook Messenger
• Facebook for Android

Cover Feed
As soon as you turn on your phone, you see 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.

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.

App Launcher
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.
