PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — You can’t get Facebook Home on your iPhone. But you will be able to get one of the most buzzed-about features from Facebook’s new mobile software.

iPhone and iPad users will be able to use the company’s newest messaging feature Chat Heads. It’s called Chat Heads because friends’ profile photos pop up when they send you a message.

Unlike the Android version which show up no matter what app you’re using, the iOS Chat Heads will only work when you’re using the Facebook App.

Facebook also introduced Stickers, which it says are “a more visual way to express yourself in messages,” as well as a new version of the iPad layout, which mirrors the version Facebook recently brought to the desktop News Feed.

The update is currently available in the App Store.
