It’s a little like having Growl notifications on your Android device, but more useful since it actually doesn’t require you to switch apps to engage with the ongoing conversations.
The only downside I can see is that if you get a lot of FB messages, you may feel a tad overwhelmed while trying to keep up, and it’s definitely a visual and auditory distraction.
I have to wonder how other developers will feel about Facebook interrupting their experience with customers within their own apps.
It doesn’t appear as though Chat Heads in the standalone Messenger app pulls in your text messages too, based on our tests.
Still, it’s already turning out to be pretty addictive in just a short time using it.
