If you went out and purchased the HTC First because you thought you’d be the first and only person to have Facebook Home for a couple of weeks or months, we hate to burst your bubble but it looks as though Facebook not only released Facebook Home’s Chat Heads feature in its Facebook Messenger app for Android, but they have also just released Facebook Home entirely for some select Android devices.
The devices that currently can install Facebook Home are the HTC One X, HTC One X+, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 are said to support Facebook Home in the future, but for you other Android users, you’ll need to be patient until it’s available on your device of choice.
If you absolutely insist on having some kind of a Facebook Home experience on your Android device, then you could always download Facebook Messenger as it was updated today to include Home’s Chat Heads feature. We guess that’ll do for now, but we’re hoping Facebook doesn’t take its sweet time supporting more devices.
