Facebook Home is scheduled to launch later today for select Android devices, but one of the coolest new features of Facebook’s launcher is available right now. Today the standalone Facebook Messenger app was updated to include the new Chat Heads feature, which overlays Facebook messages on top of your Android experience.
We tested out the feature this morning, and it’s simply awesome. I’m not a huge Facebook Messenger fan, but I can already see myself using it more now that Chat Heads is available. If you have a Facebook account and want to check it out, install Facebook Messenger and make sure your Facebook app is updated as well.
For those without Facebook, check out the quick video of Chat Heads on the new HTC First for an idea of what to expect.
