Not Facebook Phone, But Facebook Home

5 years ago

The rumors were that we would get a Facebook Phone, but what we actually got was Facebook Home, which Facebook says makes your phone friendlier. Basically it puts your Facebook news feed upfront on your phone all the time.

Pop Sugar wrote about it in Facebook Home: A New Social Experience for Android. PopSugar described it like this:

Like the social network's updated News Feed, Facebook's new not-quite-an-app, not-quite-an-operating-system Android experience, takes on a more visual design that puts content first (like being in full-screen mode on your browser), and will be available to download from the Google Play store starting April 12.

How about it Android fans and Facebook fanatics – is this just what you've been waiting for? Will you download it and start using it on April 12?
