Facebook Home Now Shows Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest & More On Lock Screen


Facebook Home, the Android launcher from Facebook that you’ve probably forgotten about by now, has been updated to support Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr integration — allowing users to see posts and photos from these services on their lock screen.

Lock screen posts for third-party services first came to Facebook Home through the Facebook for Android beta program earlier this month, but with the latest update, it’s available to all. You’ll need to install the latest version of both Facebook and Facebook Home on your Android device to use it.

When you set up Home, you can choose which services have access to your lock screen. If you already have the launcher installed, then you’ll find these options within the Home app under “more settings.”
