Facebook has launched a new update to the messenger app for Android. The new update brings Chat Head feature that allows you to chat from their smartphones even when they are using other apps. All you have to do is tap on the chat head to reply, drag it down to close. Meaning, you don't have to go to the the Messenger app in order to chat on Messenger. You can also interlink your SMS inbox to the messenger, to make it even more simpler (Currently the feature is only available for some phones).
Chat Heads happens to be one the the key features included with Facebook Home. In case you do not wish to instal Facebook Home on to your samrtphones, you can install this feature separately.
