Facebook iPad App Updated: Chatheads & New Look for News Feed

Facebook iPad app Chatheads

The Facebook app for iPad and iPhone was updated yesterday, to Version 6.0.

The two big changes for Facebook for iPad are a refreshed look for the news feed and the addition of the new ‘Chatheads’ feature – that allows you to ‘keep chatting from anywhere in the app’.

Here’s the full change list for this update – note that the details are different for the iPad and iPhone apps:

Brand new ways to chat and a cleaner look for News Feed.
New for iPhone
• Keep chatting from anywhere in the app with chat heads
• Send stickers to bring your messages to life
• Explore new feeds like Music, Photos and Games
New for iPad
• Keep chatting from anywhere in the app with chat heads
• Browse brighter, more beautiful stories
Chat heads and stickers will be available to everyone over the next few weeks.

I like the news feed revamp – it does feel a bit cleaner to me. I haven’t followed all the Facebook Home news or kept up with what Chatheads is all about. So I’m not 100% sure if what I’m seeing in the iPad app now (shown above) is the full new feature or not.

What do you all think of this latest update for Facebook for iPad?

  1. I love the new changes. The chat bubble idea is simplicity itself! Before getting to msgs was a real pain in the ass!
