Facebook Reveals Smartphone Home User Interface

The social network unveiled a new Home user interface at a press event held today. Unfortunately, no new smartphones were introduced which was assumed for quite some time now. The new Home UI transforms the home screen of your Android device into "Cover Feed".

The "Cover Feed" automatically shows you a stream of your friend's content from Facebook. The second feature is called "Chat Heads", which is a new Facebook feature that includes an improved version of messaging with colorful notifications.

The Facebook Home will be available for download on April 12 in the Play Store but only for a few Android devices. The supported devices are the HTC One and One X, the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note II.
