Talking tech since 2003

Facebook just pushed an update to the Android version of Facebook Messenger, allowing users to take advantage of the new Chat Heads feature (without having to install Facebook Home). Like in Facebook Home, the Messenger app displays a round icon with the face of whoever you’re talking to, regardless of the app you are using. Once you update the app, you will be able to tap the chat head to reply to both SMS and Facebook messages. Pretty cool, huh?

We covered the announcement of Facebook Home earlier this month, check out our coverage for more information on Chat Heads as well as Facebook Home

Facebook Home is also expected to be released today.  Will you be downloading it?
