Facebook Home Is Officially Out In Australia [Updated]

What’s up, Facebook fans. Here’s one for you to Like. Facebook Home just landed in Australia! Here’s how you can get it.

It’s a fairly simple process, as long as you have a supported device.

What you’ll need to do is head over to the Google Play Store, download the Facebook app and then the Facebook Home app. Once they’re both installed, you choose Facebook Home to be your default launcher and you’re done!

Beware, though: Facebook Home seems to override some of your existing security settings — i.e: pattern unlock, face unlock — to put your personal info like Facebook photos, a list of your apps, and status updates outside of the security fence.

You can get Facebook Home easily only if you have a supported device. The list includes the HTC One X/X+ (if you imported one of the latter), the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the Samsung Galaxy S III.

If you have a device other than that, you can either wait (pfft) or check our guide on how to get it for yourself.

Update: Looks like Galaxy Note II devices on running Telstra firmware aren’t actually registering as supported devices…
