While Facebook did give a try of capturing the smartphone arena with the Facebook Home launcher, the company has now launched another app – Facebook Hello.
Facebook creative Labs has announced the launch of the Hello for Android app, which is a dialler and caller id app with an integration of Facebook’s social database. Given the incorporation of Facebook into the caller id app, the user can see who is calling even if the number hasn’t been saved. The app allows the user to block unwanted calls that go straight to voicemail.
Being a social app, the Hello for Android app provides the latest info about the contacts and allows to search for people and businesses on Facebook. It also pulls up the profile pictures and birthdays of the contacts. Further, the app can also be used to call and text for free using Facebook Messenger. The app is available for free on the Google Play store for download but is currently limited to a few countries and doesn’t support India at the moment. But if you really want to try out the dialler, then you can directly download and install the apk.
