Facebook Home Now Live On Google Play, A Free App For HTC One X And X+, Samsung Galaxy S III and Note II
Facebook Home, the new Android-based launcher that puts the social network and its messaging, photo and other services front and center on a user’s mobile device, is now available for download on Google Play for a limited selection of Android devices: HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note II. This comes after earlier today Facebook updated its Facebook Messenger Android app with Chat Heads functionality, as well as its basic Android app with Facebook Home support.
Facebook debuted Home earlier this month. At the time it announced that it would be available on Google Play from today. Home is also coming pre-installed on the HTC First: this has been available on pre-order since April 4 on AT&T, and is officially on sale with AT&T from today (with a little promotional help from Facebook itself). The HTC First will be hitting France and the UK this summer via France Telecom’s Orange and its EE JV in the UK.
