The much anticipated Facebook Home is here, but it is not merely limited to a phone but it is a family of apps and a launcher that will integrate Facebook deep into the Android platform.
If you want to try out the Facebook Home for yourself, you have two options in front of you, but you’ll have to wait till April 12.
Buy an HTC First
Facebook Home is pre-installed and specially integrated on HTC First and it is the first phone that will have a tailored version of Facebook Home. If you are in the US you can buy HTC First through AT&T for $99.99 with a 2 year contract. The release details for other regions are not yet known.

Download and Install Facebook Home From Google Play
If you are not in the US or do not wish to spend 100 bucks on a Facebook phone then you too have a way of trying / using Facebook Home. Facebook Home will be available for Android via Google Play Store from April 12. However it will only be supported by a few phones like HTC One, HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S III,Samsung Galaxy Note II and Samsung Galaxy S 4 (in future).
Once Facebook Home is released, if you have the latest version of Facebook app / Facebook Messenger app for android, all you have to do is launch any of these apps and it will lead you to Google Play Store where you can download Facebook Home.
While installing you will have the option to simply try or permanently install Facebook Home on your android phone. It is recommended that you first use the 'try’ option so that you can get rid of it easily if you feel it uncomfortable or not worth it.
