Washington: A new update to Facebook`s Android app will let users access photos and posts from friends on the lock screen of their phones, without having to unlock it.

According to a news website, from the Android app version of the feature, users will get the same look and feel as the Home counterpart including quick access to camera and messages.

However, chat heads and the Home launcher will not be available as a feature of the app and users can enable chat heads from Facebook`s stand-alone Messenger app, the report said.

The company also recently invited Android users to join its beta program, and test new versions of its Android app before they launch to the general public, the report added.
