MENLO PARK, Calif., April 12 (UPI) -- Facebook Home, the social network's user interface for Android smartphones, is now available on Google Play.

Integrating the social network's core features such as Likes, Comments, Messenger and other features as a new overlaid "home screen" on top of Android, it is available for download but only to a small selection of supported devices, ZDNet reported Friday.

Those include the One, X and X+ from HTC and the Galaxy SIII, S4 and Note II from Samsung.

HTC has also introduced a new handset, the HTC First, with Facebook Home preinstalled and available from AT&T for $99.99 on contract.

Users of supported devices who wish to download Facebook Home will need to be running the most recent versions of Facebook's standard Android mobile application and Facebook Messenger for Android.
