Facebook Home adds support for Galaxy S4, HTC One

Good news for those of you with 1080p screen devices that haven’t been able to try Facebook Home. The social networking company quietly pushed out an update to the official Facebook app yesterday that adds support for the Samsung Galaxy S4, as well as the HTC One and Sony Xperia ZL. Facebook Home won’t work straight off the bat, but diving into Facebook’s settings will quickly set you on the right path.

Android Central spotted the newly added support for this year’s flagship devices. According to the site, the HTC One now works with Facebook Home without any user intervention at all. In addition, those with a Galaxy S4 or Xperia ZL can tick “Use Home Anyway” in the Facebook app’s settings to finally try out the launcher.

Tthe company also announced that the app had surpassed the one million download threshold. It comes not long after Facebook Home managed to score 500,000 downloads from the Play Store, but the social networking site still isn’t breaking down the numbers in terms of active installs vs regular downloads.

Finally, Facebook said that Home would be received another update in due course as part of its commitment to update the app every four weeks. New features in the future will include a new user experience, as well as a dock and a dash bar.
