Today at its event Facebook has announced Facebook Home a launcher for Android with the idea is to make the world more open and connected. Home is a family of Facebook apps that pretty much changes your Android device into a Facebook phone. 

Coverfeed overhauls your lockscreen and homescreen, it gives you updates on what your friends are doing including photos, checkins and status updates. It allows you to comment and like posts right from your homescreen, giving a real native experience.

The UI is all full-screen and looks beautiful. Messaging on Facebook home allows you to message from anywhere and see who is talking to you with something Facebook is calling "Chatheads". Just by tapping one it will open a chat window over the current application you are using.

Facebook Home will be available to download from Google Play on April 12th.
