Facebook Home's development team has reportedly disbanded


Facebook may be giving up on its ambitious (and poorly received) plan to take over your smartphone. According to The New York Times' Bits blog, Facebook has disbanded the team responsible for developing Facebook Home, an Android skin that it released last year, which overhauled a phone to display Facebook photos on its lock screen and provide easy access to chat messages and status updates. Bits doesn't say that work on Home has necessarily ended for good, but it suggests the chances of it moving forward aren't very high either.

Despite Facebook promising monthly updates for Home, Bits notes that the app hasn't been updated since January. It remains available in the Play Store, however, largely with unfavorable reviews. Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
