Introduction of Home

By Tom Alison and Adam Mosseri

Today we present home – a new way your Android device to transform into a great, lively and social phone.

People want to share content and connect with others. In this way, they discover new information and build meaningful relationships. However, mobile phones today are based on tasks and applications. To find out what your friends have to do, get out your cell phone and you go through a number of independent applications.

Starting from the assumption that the sharing of content and connecting with other people is most important, we wondered how a cell phone would look like if it would focus on friends.

Our answer to this is home. Home is not a mobile phone or operating system – but it is far more than just an app. At Home is an entirely new user experience that enables the world from the perspective of people – to consider – and not from the point of view of apps.

Cover Feed

Perhaps you missed the news earlier, but now they are at the heart of home. Once your home is locked and your home screen at the same time, you have immediate access to the content. You can browse through them to see more content and tap twice if you like them.

The feed cover is between the moments – like waiting in line at the supermarket – if you want to see what’s happening in your world.
