Facebook updated its Home launcher for Android, adding the time, weather and notifications to the lock screen. The move appears to dial back the placement of Facebook content in the app. Previously, the app showed photos and posts from the Facebook News Feed on the lock screen. The latest version has you swipe to get to photos and posts.

Other changes to the app include swipe down to unlock, new wallpaper photo categories and a shortcut to Cover Feed from the launcher.
