One of the most compelling features of Facebook Home is Chat Heads, which adds a persistent notification to your screen when a friend messages you on Facebook. The icon will hover over all other apps so you can quickly reply in any app. If you don’t want to be bothered, you can just swipe down and the notification will disappear. If you want Chat Heads all the other functions of Facebook Home, now you can. An update for Facebook Messenger brings Chat Heads to all devices running Android 2.2 and up.
One of the coolest thing about Chat Heads is that you can use it to reply to SMS and Facebook messages. If you allow Facebook Messenger to handle your SMS messages, they will integrate directly with Chat Heads. Facebook Messages will show up with blue chat bubbles while SMS messages will display in green. This subtle color difference makes Chat Heads feel like an integrated chat experience, similar to what Apple has with iMessage.
You can get the updated Facebook Messenger by updating from Google Play or right here from Softonic.
