As far as messaging apps go, few apps can claim to have quite the popularity and reach of Facebook Messenger, but the fact of the matter is that this app is not always ideal for people who are making do with older Android devices or indeed dwelling in parts of the world where Internet connectivity isn't the greatest. This is where the brand new Messenger Lite comes in.
This lightweight messaging app is designed to make it easier than ever for people to easily send text messages, multimedia and links to people using either the regular Facebook Messenger or indeed Messenger Lite. This app takes about 10 MB of space and focuses on core functionality rather than bells and whistles.
As messaging apps become more versatile, they can tend to hamper performance on older phones, which is why the introduction of a lightweight and basic Facebook Messenger Lite app is a thoughtful and considerate innovation.
