Washington: Social networking giant Facebook has updated its iPhone and iPad applications that would allow people keep using its chat feature even when they are doing other activities on the site.
Facebook announced that it is bringing its chat heads feature to its Apple apps.
It's called chat heads because friends' profile photos pop up when they send you a message, Fox News reports.
According to the report, Chat heads is part of a broader integration that Facebook is doing with a new Home app on some phones running Google's Android operating system.
Unlike with Home, iPhone and iPad users will have to stay inside the Facebook application to use chat heads.
