Chat Heads for Android is now available for free on Google Play. If you like the concept of Facebook Home, then you will love this application, because not only will the incoming message notifications as bubbles of Facebook Messenger, but in addition, you will also have those of your SMS and WhatsApp, and soon the LINE and Viber.
Chat Heads let you message within any app. You can view incoming message from friends in any app, and reply with a click. It does no matter what app you’re already in. checking email, playing games, browsing the web or any other app.
When an incoming chat message arrives, a bubble with the picture of the sender and the text appears on the screen with the sender’s photo. Tap the photo to open a message window, swipe to remove.
* Incoming messages do not break your flow, they appear whereever you are
* Seeing faces instead of names is faster to recognize
* The bubble appears long enough and has a large enough text that you can read it (unlike notifications)

HOW IT WORKS
