Facebook Home, ‘the next version of Facebook’ is finally on its way to bring a change, a promise of Android to its users. A complete new mobile experience to stay connected by putting your friends at the heart of your phone is here to get explored. From the moment you turn it on; you see a stream of your friend’s photos, posts and chat heads popping up on your home screen. At a glance you can check out new photos, posts and news. Keep typing and chatting with your Facebook friends while using the other apps.
What is so different about it than a usual Facebook application?
Facebook Home, however, is the first high profile example; a niche group of Android users have it! No more waiting to sign up to see what’s on the roads! Get instant access and keep chatting with your friends while using other apps. Gone days where you missed moments all because you don’t have time to log in and check for notifications, Facebook home has brought a steady stream of everything on to your home screen and notifications will find its place in the center of screen, tap them if you are interested or swipe them to remove.
Can everybody have it in their phone or excess it easily?
The Only deal is you to carry an Android, if you have one of the HTC supported device or Samsung then you are ready to get enchanted. Only a handful of select devices can even run the Home (officially) – notably missing from the lineup is Google’s Nexus 4, the latest in the lineup for the users who wanted to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to new apps. Facebook promises that more handsets will be supported in time but for those who can’t download it because they use a ‘wrong’ Smartphone or if somehow get access to it perhaps they ignite the hypothesis that the product won’t ever be really successful as Facebook Promises. Surprisingly Apple is out of list too because of its restrictions, and so the Facebook will never be able to run an intended on iOS operating system.
How to get started?
Once you own one of those Android 4 or above on either HTC One X or One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II or Galaxy S 4, you simply need to download the latest version of Facebook installed on your phone and to get started with the chat you need to download Facebook Home App which has recently arrived on Google Play.
