tuFans of Nova Launcher and WidgetLocker have long had support for bubble-style unread counts on some app icons thanks to TeslaUnread. The newest beta version of this app includes preliminary support for a ton of new apps, but you’ll have to opt into the beta.

Here’s the changelog, which is mostly just a list of newly supported apps.

  • Hangouts (requires Hangouts v2.1)
  • Whatsapp
  • BBM
  • Outlook.com
  • Notification Bar Watcher (Android 4.3+)
  • Extract unread counts from Notification Bar notifications from virtually any app
  • Facebook (Experimental, unsupported on HTC Sense)
  • Press RSS (Experimental)
  • Many bug fixes and optimizations
  • Fixed FCs (4/29/14)

There are some caveats, of course, but this should make those little bubbles much more useful.
