If you like the Facebook Home experience but don’t want to give Facebook full control of your on their Android home screen, Chat Heads is available in Messenger for Android 2.2 devices and up, says GigOm’s Kevin C. Tofel.

A Friday update to the Messenger app includes the new feature. Chat Heads, introduced during last week’s Facebook Home launch, provide persistent pop-up bubbles for incoming chats and messages.

Initially, Facebook Home will only install on a half-dozen handsets. The new app works on all Android phones running Android 2.2 and later, meaning most Android phones.

The full Facebook Home app, by contrast, will only run on Android 4.1 or better.
