We know that Facebook is working out to bring its social services to as much internet people as possible. And now we can see the fruit of their effort in the new Facebook Home for Android.
Home is a launcher that replaces your normal homescreen with “Cover Feed” – a tool which gives you a gesture-operated aggregation of your friends’ posts, pictures, statuses, etc; For example, hovering over an
image would bring you to fullscreen mode and double-tapping will Like the picture. Home also introduces a new feature called “Chat Heads” – upon receiving a message you’ll get a floating notification showing you the image of the sender. Chat Heads styling is applied both to normal texts and Facebook messages alike.
You’ll be able to download Facebook Home on Google Play starting April 12 but for a select number of smartphones, initially – the Samsung Galaxy S4, S III and Note II and the HTC One and One X+.
