I am not certain about the feature - if my phone has it, I dont use it.
However, the latest update for the phone is version 50.1.A.13.123 - so I am not sure what version you are running. Based on your message, I am going to assume you have a H3123 - https://xpericheck.com/device/H3123
Try updating to that version and see first? If it wont update - perhaps flash the device to it? I cannot help you with the flashing process - but you can find the software for your country/location/carrier using the xperifirm program
As far as I know, neither of these features are connected to Xperia Home as it depends on if the device supports it or not. The Xperia XA2 does not support these features and I'm not sure what device your friend is using, but we have had the option in other Xperia devices.
