Facebook’s Messenger app has always been taking a chunk out of your phone’s memory and depleting the battery massively, proving to be a headache for most of the users. Apart from privacy issues the app from Facebook has always been criticized openly by most of the people but we’re still sticking with them.
While Facebook has already introduced their miniature version of Facebook app dubbed as Facebook ‘Lite’, this time around the social networking giant has released the new Lite version of its quite infamous Messenger app. Entitled as Messenger Lite the app promises to consume less storage and memory(the app size is less than 10MB) of the phone as well as requires less stable or bandwidth connection – more like the Facebook Lite version which worked with 2G network without any hiccups. The Messenger Lite is more specifically targeted to developing countries like Nepal, however, the at the initial stage the app has been rolled out to selected countries including, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Tunisia, Venezuela, and Kenya. The app is expected to hit more countries soon including Nepal and India.
The Lite version of the Messenger app will definitely prove to be helpful for most of the people residing in a country or a place with a poor network connection. The app will also be a boon for most of the users who are still hanging out with old Android smartphones. We also expect the app to hit the Play Store Internationally since the Lite version of the app will be a good alternative for people looking to save some precious memory and battery life.
