iphone facebook homeFacebook quietly updated its iOS app yesterday to include on of the best features from its recent Facebook Home app, chat heads.

Chat heads is a new way to interact with messages you receive on the social network. The feature allows users to continue what they’re doing like browsing the news feed without interruption.

Users can drag the chat heads and position them wherever they please helping you to focus on what you’re doing.

Besides chat heads, Facebook finally introduced its redesigned news feed and timeline for profiles. iPad users will see brighter, more beautiful stories, Facebook says.

Facebook home offers other features on Android like;

Cover feed: With Home, people can immediately access your app content from their News Feed once they turn on their phone. We also make it easy for people to engage with your content as they can simply double tap to like a post and comment right from cover feed. At launch, Open Graph stories with user generated photos will be supported in cover feed.

Notifications: People will receive bigger, bolder notifications from you right on their phone home screen. We’ve made improvements to notifications to make them more engaging and easier for people to interact with. It’s never been easier to reengage with people using your app.

App launcher: Home’s launcher makes it easy for people to get to your apps quickly. People choose what’s on their app launcher and it’s simple for them to get your app in there.

To get the update head over to the App Store app and update your app as you would any other.
