  • Hey guys this is Austin and today I’m here with a hands on of the

  • brand new Facebook Home for Android. It’s very easy to install, all you

  • need to do is make sure you have the most recent versions of the

  • Facebook app and the Facebook Messenger app downloaded. Then

  • you can install Facebook Home straight from the Play Store however I

  • will mention it’s only officially working on a few phones right now

  • including the Galaxy S3, Note 2 and HTC One X and only in the US.

  • So what exactly is Home? You can think of it as a new skin for your

  • phone that brings a lot of Facebook features right up front. For

  • example as soon as you unlock your phone youll see a stream of

  • pictures from your Facebook feed and you can immediately start

  • scrolling through them to see what’s up. You can Like by double

  • tapping anywhere on the screen which is actually kind of fun to play

  • with. When youre ready to unlock your phone youll find your profile

  • picture as a little bubble. You can drag left to open Messenger, up to

  • go into your apps and right to open the last app you had running. If

  • you use a passcode lock on your phone beware though, with the

  • default settings anyone can like and comment before fully unlocking

  • the phone and the integration is a bit half baked for now. Unlike normal

  • Android the app view is still extremely simple with a list of pages

  • where you can organize apps however widgets aren’t supported yet.

  • Above is a quick menu where you can update your status along with

  • snapping a picture to be uploaded to Facebook and scrolling over to

  • the left brings you to a list of your apps. Once youre in an app

  • everything looks basically normal but Home is still only a button press

  • away. Surprisingly one of my favorite features of Home is Chatheads.

  • These are little notifications that will pop up and allow you to hop in

  • and reply to a Facebook message or normal SMS and then go back to

  • whatever youre doing without ever leaving the app. Best of all this is

  • now built into the normal Messenger app so you can even use

  • Chatheads with a different launcher. So what do you guys think of

  • Facebook Home? Right now it’s a bit basic but Chatheads alone

  • makes it worth the download for me but definitely be sure to let me

  • know what you think in the comments below! If youre interested in

  • more feel free to check out my last video going over your questions

  • including the PS4 vs a Gaming PC. If you enjoyed definitely be sure to

  • leave this video a thumbs up and subscribe for more like this! Anyway

  • guys I will catch you next time!
