We just saw updates to Facebook and Messenger that were preparing for Facebook Home to arrive on Android. Now, the app is rolling out to the Play Store, albeit slowly. As of right now, links to the app here are pulling up the entry on some devices. We've been trying it out here at AP and some of us can get the app to come up, some can't, but it's clearly on its way.

The app is due to come out today, per Facebook's anonouncement back on the 4th, so keep an eye on the Play Store and let us know if you're able to download it. At launch, the only devices to be supported will be the HTC One X, One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, and (eventually) the One and Galaxy S4. Sorry, everyone else. You'll have to wait.

Thanks, Nick!

Update: Here is the APK for those who requested it:

    Not found :P

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      Guys. Give it a bit. The article says that it's not showing up for everyone, but that it's coming. 15 comments saying the the link is dead for some people doesn't make it go faster.

      • anerik

        Yeah but are u guys sure? I mean, can't that be a country-block thing?

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          You should still see the page and not a "Not Found" no matter what country you're in. It will just say "not available in your country."

          • anerik

            Yeah, guess you are right, we'll just have to wait then.

      • replublicatsaresostupid

        In all fairness, a good bit of the people probably saw this pop up on an RSS reader at work and immediately went to download it at the bottom. Comments don't auto appear at the bottom and most people don't click the show more comments button. Just readers trying to be informative.

  • Chronus719

    Post an APK once it's up? It's interesting that reviews are saying it runs stock Android below the interface, but Facebook isn't listing Nexus devices as being compatible.

    • RepublicansAreSoStupid

      So far it relies on Touchwiz and Sense as a backbone from what I have been reading.

      • Chronus719

        I know that an APK teardown referenced both TouchWiz and Sense frameworks, but I'm wondering where the disconnect is with the HTC First basically running stock Android, yet the app showing up in the Play Store as incompatible with my Nexus 4.

        • DiscoStu

          It is checking the build.prop for your device.

    • chandradithya

      Thats what surprises me. Theoretically speaking Facebook Home should run on stock devices smoother than the skinned ones.

    • Krisztián Kelemen

      the leaked beta worked on my Galaxy Nexus, maybe sideloading the final apk will work too

      • Cameltoad

        Nope. :(

    We're sorry, the requested URL was not found on this server. :s

  • http://twitter.com/etis Eti Suruzon

    Found but not compatible. I suspect it will work on other devices like the nexus 4 just fine. Can you please post an APK?

  • Dave

    Not even sure if I want it, but knowing I can't have it on my gnex makes me want it.

    • Christopher Bement

      I said the same thing until about 15 seconds into the video. No thanks.

  • Krisztián Kelemen

    the beta worked great on the Galaxy Nexus, so I'm wondering if sideloading the new apk will work this time

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Matteo-Rodrigo/1340430528 Matteo Rodrigo

      On Google play, it said not compatible with galaxy nexus

      • Krisztián Kelemen

        it doesn't matter, as it's not compatible because they say so, not because it can't handle it... the beta worked, so maybe installing the separate apk would also work, now you get it?

        • DiscoStu

          Only if you change your build.prop file which means needing root.

      • Krisztián Kelemen

        there's a workaround

  • http://twitter.com/djspy DJ SPY

    It's not compatible with my device. RAZR Maxx HD

  • http://www.facebook.com/samyak.ranjan Samyak Ranjan

    Can anybody post the downloaded apk?
    Maybe it's working on other devices? ^_^

    • DeadSOL

      Yup. We'd love an apk.

          • Loren Cogar

            Thanks for uploading this, unfortunately Facebook Home still checks your device and says "Thanks for installing Facebook Home. Your Device is not supported yet. You'll get a notification when Facebook Home is available for your device."

          • Loren Cogar

            I think a build.prop mod is going to be required to run this on unsupported devices.

          • http://twitter.com/omac_ranger Logan Graham

            Likely. It's working on the Note 2.

          • http://www.facebook.com/sam.sarsten Sam Sarsten

            Which model are you using?

          • http://www.facebook.com/sam.sarsten Sam Sarsten

            Change build.prop as follows:
            ro.product.model=SPH-L900
            ro.product.brand=samsung

            Tested and working on HTC EVO LTE!

          • ProductFRED

            Yeah, but that screws with other apps and which apps are compatible with your device. I don't recommend changing your device's identification to a completely different device, especially when ZIP's sometimes won't flash because they'll read your device's build.prop and think it's a different phone.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=502490682 Nicholas Saulino

            I just installed the apk on my Galaxy Nexus. A screen comes up saying that my device is not compatible and that I will receive a notification when it is.

            Thanks for the upload though!

          • http://www.facebook.com/HenriqueMelissopoulos Henrique Melissopoulos

            Ouowwwwww working great on a galaxy S3 in Brazil!!! Thanks for sharing the link!

      • LiamBryant

        You can download it cracked from here, it should work with unsupported devices if you follow the instructions http://www.modaco.com/topic/361924-facebook-home-download-including-patched-apk-version/
        I have it on my gnex right now and it was pretty cool for about 5 minutes. One thing I really really do like is how its full-screen, but a swipe from the top edge shows the status bar. I think every full-screen app should have this functionality.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

  • http://www.facebook.com/tekken179 Arron Bailey

    Horrible support list, horrible launch, disappointed - typical of facebook, their "leaked pre-release" worked on a lot more devices than what they have stated.

    • Lex_407

      Just wait for the APK to drop because more than likely it will work on other devices. They just state those devices because that's what they more than likely worked on for the support of Facebook Home.

      • Krisztián Kelemen

        and not supporting officially the nexus devices is a message to Google's users... you wanna use FB Home? go get the HTC First or some of our partners' stuff

      • http://www.facebook.com/tekken179 Arron Bailey

        Got the apk Nexus 4 not supported, editing the build.prop seems to work, but why should we? Facebook has been nothing other than a miserable android experience =

  • GatorBait1996

    Facebook Home is a joke just like it's CEO. Way to let everyone down. Maybe the folks at Facebook don't know that today is April 12th. Or is this an elaborate (late) April Fools gag.

      Fuck off!

      • GatorBait1996

        I take it Sidharth by your anger you might be one of the retards that created Facebook Home??? I'm going to go with you're just a retard.

    • ignitionnight

      Facebook and Mark Z are a joke? Says the guy trolling a comment section complaining about his products when he doesn't know you exist lol.

      • GatorBait1996

        Oh no! He doesn't know I exist, how will I go on with life now. I take you think he personally knows you....idiot. My point is if you make a launch date then have it ready to launch on said date. If I did something like that at my job I wouldn't have a job anymore.

        • ignitionnight

          Today was the launch date and it launched today........ They said from day one it would be for limited devices, and announced what devices that would be for. Are you a dummy or purposefully being an ass?

          • GatorBait1996

            How does being truthful mean I'm being an ass?? I've got the Note II, that's one of the devices that was in the limited device list yet FB Home is not available for download in the app store. I'm not the only one here disappointed by the members at FB.

        • Patrik Zachar

          No need to install it, it's really bad. you loose all Android features for Facebook. No, thanks.

          • Bariman43

            Do you 'lose' Android features or does it allow you to let Android's features loose?

          • Patrik Zachar

            Basically, you'll have no homescreen, no widgets, no folders. I can imagine this to be something like Blinkfeed where you still have normal home screen. It might be better in couple of months when they change it up a bit, but it's not there yet.

          • Bariman43

            It boggles me you spelled everything right but the word "lose". But that aside I see what you mean. I think the point of Home is it's basically to be a multi-functional Facebook widget.

          • Patrik Zachar

            I didn't misspell word 'lose' :P I meant 'lose' as losing something and I believe that it is grammatically correct. And Facebook Home would be so cool if it would be full-screen widget, I wouldn't mind scrolling up and down instead, at the end of the day, that's how Facebook works now. But it really annoys me how they are putting Facebook over everything else.

    • Scott Ricketts

      The install fails on my Nexus 4. Dropping it into /data/app and setting permissions likewise doesn't work. The app doesn't show up as being installed. Time to wait for someone on xda to post a version that doesn't look at the build.prop for verification.

      how does one do this?

      • http://www.facebook.com/DanielMcKenzieJTraynor Daniel McKenzie J. Traynor

        Install Build Prop Editor from the Google Play Store - and Change the Build.Prop details to a Samsung Galaxy S3 (I'm just looking for the build.prop for the S3 now.) Or you can change to Galaxy Note 2.

    • Rick Fisher

      But does this need to be done every time/kept enabled in order for it to continue working? I've got no problem doing this if I just have to do it once to log in and set the launcher, but I'm afraid of incompatibilities with other apps already on my phone

      • Rick Fisher

        I'll go ahead and reply to my own question in case anyone else wants to know the same- you CAN change back with no issues, it's just enabling it where it checks. I updated my build prop, cleared the data on facebook and messenger and installed home, then enabled home in the facebook app and when everything was working I changed my build prop back to the way I had it and restarted the phone- Home still there, working as expected.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=15104883 Andrew Rivlin

    You can easily install it if you don't live in USA. Install tunnelbear.com app on PC/MAC, go to the play.google.com store and install from their site. It will push the app to your phone. (Working in Canada on a Galaxy S3.)

  • Roland Hurt

    Works In the UK if you have a compatible device unless you Root and edit the Build.prop. I refuse to Root my SIII Mini and edit the Build.prop file just for this Launcher.

    I've side loaded apps on my Nexus 7 that weren't supported on it and they have worked. Why oh why lock the .apk only to set list of devices.

    Zuck you're a jumped up little prick for:
    1) Locking a launcher to the US only without having to side load.
    2) Locking the .apk to only work on the officially supported devices, most devs lock to devices in the Play Store but allow side loading onto non supported devices.

    The Leaked .apk sort of worked on my SIII Mini, only had the Profile pic ring and the app drawer stuff because I was unable to Login.

    I don't know if anyone else has noticed this but my phone battery feels like it's on fire since installing this. Galaxy SIII

  • Abhishek

    you need to change in build.prop to GT-N7100 to model and product so that this apk works

  • GreatNews

    Well the Apk doesn't work on the Nexus 4

  • Berzas

    Tried,didn't liked, uninstalled.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sam.sarsten Sam Sarsten

    Unsupported device...

    Change build.prop as follows:
    ro.product.model=SPH-L900
    ro.product.brand=samsung

    Tested and working on HTC EVO LTE!

    isnt compatible with my note 2 according to play

  • TechTranny

    It's cute . Im enjoying it on my Note 2 . Wish I could enjoy it in my evo 4g lte

  • Dave Molina

    I downloaded and installed the app on my GSM GNex - but when it goes to run I just get a pretty screen telling me its not available yet for my device still and will be notified when. The chat heads are working tho in the updated messenger app and kinda cool (at least you can turn them off in the settings if you don't like them)

    I got it on my S3, works cool-ish.

  • http://thezargon.org Fernando Fonseca

    Downloaded. Tells me that my Galaxy Note 2 is not supported.

  • Paul

    I got it working on a UK unlocked Galaxy S3, but not through any hacking! I just downloaded the apk, opened it, it told me it was not available on my device yet, but I then went into the Facebook app and there was a link that said "Thanks for downloading Facebook Home" with a button to complete setup. Touched this and it's now working!

  • xspirits

    Downloaded it an tried, well it just suck for me. (PERSONNAL POV)

    I really don't want a facebook-phone, here home is just turning my phone into that, not widgets, nothing but facebook.

    But I applause the work done on it, smooth :)

  • Anonimen

    Is 4.0 and up? or

  • N2fw

    supported certain devices because their launchers already have the necessary work arounds to allow native FB contact sync which has to be a must for the messenger to work as intended

  • Ishtiyaq Husain

    I installed it on my Galaxy S3 I9300, but messaging is not working :(

    thanks for the apk.works in UK on galaxy S3 thanks guys

  • Nick Rosas

    I have the HOX and it's not supported o.O

  • Jadephyre

    Not available on my GNex, nor on my N7, and i'm not really sad about that ^^

  • TheFunkmonkey

    Completely and utterly pointless.
    It _might_ be ok as the facebook App, but as a homescreen/launcher? No thanks.

    • TheFunkmonkey

      Oh, and im on an S3 (i9305) in Australia. Installed fine from the APK link.
      Its just boring as crap tho.
      Maybe im missing the point of it all, dont know. But the hype was just that. Hype.

  • TechGuy22

    LOL not working on my S3. or nexus 7. nice one.

  • nejai

    I´m going to root my phone, to modify my build.prop, to test facebook home, to write about how awful the new facebook app is :D ... for real

  • http://www.facebook.com/DanielMcKenzieJTraynor Daniel McKenzie J. Traynor

    Right firstly you need to be rooted to edit the build.prop - Secondly, stop moaning about how shit it is. Not 30 minutes ago you were all begging for the APK - Okay, it's crap we know. Move on and stick to Android Stock. Simple.

    Tried installing on my One X...says it's not supported...anyone know if CyanogenMod would cause a problem with this?

  • Carlos David

    Ok, got it. Installed and uninstalled, don't like this crap.

  • Chupacabra

    Dear god, I think I just threw up a little. Why would anyone want more facebook on their phone?

  • xspirits

    I can't event remove this shitty homescreen now...wtf :/

    anyone has a tip about this? I like the new floating icon, but don't want the fb homescreen when I wake up my phone.

    (I've uninstalled facebook home btw)

    • xspirits

      Ok, solution was to clear cache of facebook's app (facebook + messenger)

    • UCLAKoolman

      I actually like it as just a lockscreen (looks better than the stock one on my Note II)... So I'll keep using Nova and have this displaying when I wake the phone

  • http://www.facebook.com/terri.visneskie Terri Visneskie

    Thank you for the link. Works great. Just not sure if i like the facebook home yet or not.

  • http://www.facebook.com/alfuen00 Alberto Fuentes

    Working on galaxy note 2 here in mexico, great launcher!, the only thing i don't really like is that the camera button changes to messenger and there is no way to reverse it to original.

  • UCLAKoolman

    Works great on my Note 2. I set my launcher back to Nova as default, and can view the Facebook home info as a lock-screen. I like it!!

    • German Leon Azzi

      how!?

      • UCLAKoolman

        After you have facebook home installed, set Nova launcher back to default. When I turn off my screen and wake it, I see facebook home. When I swipe right it unlocks to my Nova homescreen.

        Make sure you have lock-screen set to "none" in Android settings.

  • Guest

    The option to remove the application icon from the app list because if the savvy thief knows it's there they will first attempt to remove it rather than leave it there and get caught.

  • Jack

    This has to be the least appealing android app of all time, glorified spyware...no thanks.

  • Eleminohp

    I have a Galaxy S2, and it was available to download...just a heads up

    Edit: Just kidding...an unsupported phone screen comes up when you try to run it.

  • Fernando

    I download the apk and the FH working fine on Galaxy Nexus 4.2.2 in Brazil.
    Thank you!

  • Alex Fiorani

    Why wouldn't they make the app available worldwide?

  • http://www.facebook.com/J.AdamCornett Adam Cornett

    What a joke. It's not even compatible with the Note 1? I paid $300 for that when it came out. It's 13 months old. Unbelievable. This crap right here is why I'm really starting to hate Android.

    • Ray

      Dude... get a clue. It's not Android/Google's fault. It's Facebook's for not releasing the app to more devices/countries/whatever they choose really.

      In the developer console you can specifically choose what devices you want to release your app to - what countries, carriers, etc. Facebook have chosen a select few devices. Not even the Nexus 4 is supported at the moment. Mostly it's just HTC phones to my knowledge which makes sense considering HTC is taking it up the date from Facebook at the moment!

    This app is incompatible with your Samsung Galaxy Note II.

    :) the reviews for it now are terrible... 900 - 3&4&5 stars and 1,300 - 1&2 stars ouch

    Bionic here
    Changed my build. Prop to:
    ro.product.model=GT-N7100
    ro.product.brand=samsung
    And Facebook home worked. The app/launcher was nice, but was more of a novelty then anything. It made people's posts look "cool" and that's about it
