Team Zuckerberg and company are moving along pretty fast this afternoon. Announcing their new take on Android and tons of other interesting new features and ideas. One in particular that will be extremely important is communication. To solve the problem of texts, Facebook messages and more all being fragmented – meet Chat Heads.
Chat Heads focuses on an idea that is to bring all your friends and conversations to the user in the most simple, and seamless experience possible. That isn’t all either, Facebook knows that while communication is important, not everyone wants to be interrupted. Chat Head is a neat and simple popup that appears on the side of the display – over the top of what your currently doing – and you can join the conversation or just dismiss it.
Chat Heads allows users to communicate with multiple friends and people, across multiple different services all with ease. Being able to essentially multitask using the same amazing experience Android offers, while also being able to communicate with all your friends was the goal – and they’ve achieved that.
Chat Heads will be the way you communicate on mobile devices using Facebook Home, and we can’t wait to give it a try. The demo on screen showed how seamless it was, smooth and fast the performance is, and the animations are pretty impressive. Again, stay tuned as we’ll have hands-on as soon as possible.
