Yesterday, Facebook updated its official app to include a few new features to make social networking even more convenient. The biggest update is the addition of chat heads. This new feature allows users to keep chatting from anywhere in the app. Now, you can talk to your high school buddy while looking at pictures of your sister’s cats.
The new update allows you to continue chatting while you are browsing in Facebook. If you receive a chat, a bubble with their picture will show up in the upper right corner of your app. To start the conversation, tap the bubble and a chat window will float above the screen. To go back to browsing, tap off of the chat window. The bubble will go back into the corner. When a new message appears, you’ll hear a notification and an alert badge that will show you the number of new messages you have received.
