Facebook Messenger for Android just got an update today, bringing in the “Chat Heads” feature from Facebook Home (which is also supposed to be released sometime today).

Just FYI, the official Facebook App for Android also got an update today to bring along various bug fixes, but we’re still waiting on Facebook Home being released on the Google Play Store.
