“You’re going to be able to turn your Android phone into a great social device,” Zuckerberg said at the unveiling. “Our phones today are designed around apps, not people. We want to flip that around.”.

Another novel feature is Chat Heads, a way to manage conversations with friends. People you’re interacting with via Facebook Messenger appear a pop-up heads on the margin as opposed to intrusive notifications. Chat Heads work with Facebook Messenger and SMS, but not third-party messaging apps.

                “”When a user’s Facebook friends start a new chat, their picture pops up on Android phone home page in a small bubble – a “chat head”.

“We think that Chat Heads are this great, personal way to do messaging,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the presentation in San Francisco, California.””

Android users who have the most recent Facebook app will see a prominent link asking users if they want to download Facebook Home. It downloads as a separate app. It’ll be available April 12.
