Facebook Home Receives Update – Brings Instagram and Pinterest Support, Plus New Icon

Facebook Home

Facebook pushed out an update to Facebook Home yesterday, which includes support for users of Instagram and Pinterest, as well as a fancy new Home icon. Other services, such as Flickr and Tumblr, also received support for the third party launcher app. 

The app still behaves the same, replacing your current lockscreen with a steady stream of status updates and pictures from your friends on Facebook. What was funny to us is that since Instagram now supports ads, will you have to see the sponsored posts on Facebook Home, as well? That remains to be seen.

Here is the changelog taken from Google Play.

What’s New:

  • Use the Home app just as your lock screen or as your lock screen and app launcher
  • Updated app launcher
  • See photos and posts from Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr on your lock screen

Is anyone using this still?

    It’s hilarious to me that they didn’t release Facebook Home for all devices. Pretty much nobody wants to use it to begin with, and the people that do are probably not running whatever specific device they offer it for.

    making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me
    she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now
    that I’m my own boss. This is what I do,www.jobs74.ℂom

    Does anyone have the apk for the most recent update? I can’t find it anywhere, nor do I have a “compatible” phone and I’m just curious to try it out.

    Do people still use facebook?

  • Actually, this new update version of Facebook does not have anything useful, it’s too simple. This makes the user does not care and tend to ignore it.

  • Alan Fortte

    Thank you so much facebook team. I was waiting this app. Its really great user friendly and smooth

  • Patrick Crumpler

    Aviate is so much better. More useful of sure. Facebook is not useful.

    • Eric

      This isn’t a luncher anymore…. lol

    • mavericksid

      Only thing that is usable is nova or apex launcher. All other launchers stay on my screen only for a day and then, bam, Uninstall.

      Yeah, Carter is a regular here, and his post was both astounding AND astonishing. Sorry, but Raymond is making chump change. Carter got a check this week for $1,024,022,084 and this past four weeks over $5,000,000,000. Carter stated that “giving companionship and gratification to lonely middle eastern princes is the most rewarding job ever, and my doctor is loving me even more now that I have to see him a few times a month for rectal related issues” ➤➤➤➤➤ http://www.middleeasternprincewantshappyending.com

    What’s facebook?

  • Joe Smith

    Facebook Home logo looks like Playstation Home.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Is that still a thing?

  • Victor Stuber

    Why can’t facebook put the design resources from home onto their flagship facebook app?

  • shamatuu

    why would you use this?

  • JT

    It was a great concept but i feel like if someone can figure out how to do this with more than just Facebook it would be great. Like Twitter and maybe some G Plus…

  • Droid Ronin

    This is what I say to good ol’ Zuck:

  • antinorm

    Is Facebook Home why the regular Facebook application requires so many permissions?

    • drathos

      Probably. All of that is why I uninstalled the app and went with the mobile web version for the few occasions I use Facebook from my phone.

      • HarvesterX

        Agreed! I’ve one since uninstalled Facebook and have used the regular desktop Web version on Browser or Chrome on the rare few occasions I need to look something up. I do however keep Messenging installed as I have friends who refuse to message me aany other way.

  • Cant wait to not use this

  • Guy Pierce

    How about support some other devices.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Can’t wait to put this bad boy on my Nexus 5 home screen.

    • Abgar Musayelyan

      i couldnt agree more. i crave the reliability thats associated with facebook.

      • HarvesterX

        Reliability indeed. Facebook applications have along histlry of being extremely minimal as well and barely consuming any power what so ever. I’ve always wanted to stream status updates straight to my lockscreen. Hell, it’s the reason I purchased a G2 at an off contract price to begin with.

    • Guy Pierce

      It’s not supported.
