Facebook Home expanded to Galaxy S4 and HTC One

Facebook Home has become available on more Android devices this week with flagship HTC and Samsung models reportedly able to add the skin

 

Facebook Home was launched last month on one dedicated handset and four existing models. Reports are now suggesting the social network has quietly made its skin available for the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.

The evidenced surfaced as Facebook apparently made changes to its Google Play app after a small press conference in Silicon Valley where it announced that Facebook Home had hit the 1 million installations mark.

If you load the app from a Galaxy S4 you're greeted with the option to "Use Home Anyway" or continue on to regular Facebook. The HTC One is apparently able to load up Home without the option.

Both the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One were listed as supported devices when Facebook unveiled Home last month, but until now the launcher wouldn't run on the handsets.

Facebook Home was limited to the HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 when it launched, as well as the dedicated HTC First handset.

Unfortunately, the response so far has been rather lukewarm. The app currently holds a two-star rating on Google Play with users criticising various aspects of the software.
