Facebook Adding Chat Heads Feature To Its iOS App, Redesigned iPad Version

According to a report from AllThingsD, later today Facebook will bring the new Chat Heads functionality from Facebook Home to its iOS app as part of a new update. Previously it was reported that Facebook was negotiating with Apple to add some of the new features to its iOS Facebook app.

The Verge got a hands-on experience with the new version of the app:

“Within the Facebook app, you can pop-out Chat Heads for your conversations, but they won't work anywhere else because of the way that iOS keeps apps sandboxed. Just as with Android, Chat Heads pop out on incoming Facebook Messages (but not for SMS), or you can open a new one directly yourself. You can drag them around to reposition them, and when they're open you have immediate access to your conversation on top of whatever you're doing on Facebook”.

Facebook has also implemented large emoji-like images called 'Stickers' that can be sent to your friends. The app includes a new 'store' where users can download sets of stickers. Facebook has also redesigned the iPad version of the app, optimizing and streamlining it for the larger screen size.
