facebook home available internationally
Facebook Home is now available on the Google Play Market officially and the U.S exclusivity for the app has been removed in a short while. Facebook Home is an ultimate mobile experience that completely replaces your launcher on the Android Device. As soon as you turn on the device, you will start getting status updates, feeds, notifications for chats and other activities etc.

To get the app running on your device, uninstall Facebook and Facebook Messenger from your Android device. Restart your phone and install the latest Facebook and Facebook Messenger. 

Once you are done doing this, as per the availability of the app in area it will be shown as an update on your Facebook Profile page on your Android Device. The update rolled out internationally on 16th April, 2013 and will be available full fledged from 17th April, 2013 on the Google Play Market. 

The app for the time being only supports the following device.

Four Android smartphones, the HTC One X, HTC One X+, the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The HTC first comes preloaded with the app.

If your device is not in the above list you can install the app on your device using our previous article on Facebook Home. This method needs you to check "Unknown Sources" in the security panel of your Android Device.

Cover Feed
As soon as you turn on your phone, you see posts from your News Feed, so you always know what your friends are up to. Swipe through to see more, double tap to like a post, and comment right from cover feed.

Chat Heads and Messenger
Install Messenger to send and receive texts and Facebook messages from the same spot. Jump in and out of conversations while you do other things, like watch videos and browse the web. Reply right from chat heads, or move them around if you're not ready to respond. http://bit.ly/fbandroidmessenger

Notifications from Facebook appear right on your home screen and stick around until you need them. Open a notification with a tap or clear them away to see your cover feed.

App Launcher
Launch your favorite apps and post to Facebook from the same spot. You choose what’s on your app launcher—press and hold an app then drag it where you want it.
