Facebook Home APK Leaked, How to Install on Any Android Phone

• Last modified: Apps, Tips

Facebook Home APK has been leaked online and now available for download, for almost any Android phone. We have just tested the Facebook Home APK on our Nexus 4 and it works like a charm. This is a beta release of the app, a Facebook layer on top of Android, which would allow you to connect with Facebook contacts in a whole new level. We hope you did catch the live event that was held a few days back.

Facebook Home is basically an additional app that enables the Home launcher, otherwise everything has been built into the official Facebook Android app and the Facebook Messenger. The leaked APK has been given below for you to download with complete instructions on how to install it on your phone. Currently, Facebook Home is only supported on HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, and the future devices, the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
