Replying to post in an XDA forum thread, Paranoid Android developer PirateGhost has stated that the ROM’s unique Halo multitasking feature is no more.
Paranoid Android has worked on a new Halo design for its Android 4.4 KitKat update. Read on for more details!
Paranoid Android has released the first public preview of its updated Halo 2.0 multitasking feature, which now displays the full notification rather than just text.
Intrigued in HALO but not exactly interested in moving over to the Paranoid Android ROM? We have good news for you, HALO is now open source!
Their Halo theme is one we’ve been excited for, and have kept track of throughout. There is a lot of cool stuff about Paranoid Android ROMs, but Halo brings the Chathead feature to us on a wider scale. Rather than being focussed on Facebook Messenger, as Home was, Halo brings those cool little pop-ups to just about every app you have. Now that’s exciting!
The latest video of Paranoid Android, a custom Android ROM, shows off how the HALO feature copes with numerous notifications and improves multi-tasking.
For those not aware, HALO is a whole lot like chat heads for Facebook Home, except it works with just about any app. The goal for HALO is to be your all inclusive notification center, and I must say I’m impressed with it.

Now, if HALO looks like Facebook Home to you, that’s because it is meant to. Paranoid Android makes no bones about that. They have no problem at all telling us where their inspiration came from, but that’s about where it ends.
It’s a brilliant function. Read on for more!
