Facebook Home was officially announced some ten days ago, alongside the HTC First. Facebook hopes to make Android smartphones more “people-centric” with its latest software offering, which Microsoft believes to be an imitation of Windows Phone. That side, Facebook hasn’t exactly had the best launch. At the moment Home is only available for a select few Android devices and HTC First is the only smartphone that ships with it pre-installed. Those who have installed it through Google Play Store have mostly given it bad reviews. Majority of the reviews give it a 1 star rating.
Facebook has already said that it aims to update its mobile apps at least once every month. The head of Mobile Engineering at Facebook, Cory Ondrejka, has revealed that Facebook Home’s first ever update will be released in the second week of May. He did not reveal any details about the actual update, so it is not know as of now what improvements it will be bringing. The update will not be exclusive to the HTC First, rather it will be available for those users as well who download Home through Play Store for their supported devices.
