As promised, the new Facebook version 6.0 update has just dropped on the App Store, bringing out a number of new features such as Chat Heads borrowed from Facebook Home for Android, a redesigned user interface on the iPad focused on the new News Feed which was announced in March, stickers in chat windows and more.

Get downloading and read the following one-line disclaimer from Facebook before you jump straight to the comments:

“Chat Heads and stickers will be available to everyone over the next few weeks”.

There, it’s a staggered roll-out, you’ve been warned…

Check out the new Chat Heads and chat stickers on a pair of screenies top of post.

Now you can keep chatting even when you’re doing other stuff on Facebook, like checking your News Feed.

To reply to a message, just tap Chat Heads. You can drag them around or flick them down to close.

To add stickers to your messages, just tap the smiley icon. Some stickers are free and others can be purchased in the Sticker Store revealed upon tapping the basket icon.

This is the new News Feed layout on an iPhone.

At least it no longer looks like a blown-up iPhone interface, no?

“The biggest change is on iPad, where you’ll see brighter, more beautiful stories,” reads a media release.

Indeed, you can now browse your News Feed by Music, Photos, Games and other categories.

Chat Heads tell me 2 things: overlays suck, & we really need a way to do this that’s part of the sys UI and not an overlay. Second screen?

    I love the new update to Facebook Chat for IOS 6, I only hope Facebook Home will be coming to IOS soon and Apple will ok & grant Facebook permission to final merge those to softwares IOS & Facebook Home, Apple should do this quickly cause it will boost Apple Devices sales rather than People buying Android case of Facebook Home only! IOS has always been the best & greatest smartphone software ever with it merging with Facebook Home will only make it more greater, hope Apple will hear us out.
