Facebook has a new plan to takeover your Android phone



Facebook just unveiled "Hello," a new dialer for Android that connects to your Facebook contacts. It's essentially a caller ID for Android that's connected to Facebook.

It's yet another move by Facebook to connect its platform to the core of the Android operating system, after its Home launcher failed to take off in 2013.

The app, which was created by Facebook's messenger team, lets you block unwanted calls, see who's calling you, and search for people and places. As shown in the photo above, the app pulls information about whoever is calling you directly from their Facebook profile, so you can see where that person works, whether it's his or her's birthday, and so on.
