Facebook Messenger Lite Debuts in the US, UK, Canada and Ireland

Facebook launches Messenger Lite in US, UK, Canada & Ireland

If at the end of the day one feels compelled to move back to using the bloated Messenger app, then the market will adapt.

Facebook's Messenger Lite Android app introduced in new four markets of The United States, United Kingdon, Ireland and Canada.

Facebook Messenger Lite, which was announced in October 2016, is less than 10MB.

By definition, the app doesn't plan to introduce an iOS version as the main goal of creating a lite version was to target mid-range to entry-level Android devices, according to TechCrunch.

As many people have no access to 3G and 4G network coverage, this slimmed down app is essential for a company to broaden its market.

Facebook's data-saving Messenger Lite alternative was so far available for users in developing countries.


Since it's dealing with smaller amounts of data, messages within the Lite app will load faster and you'll be more likely to get them in places with spotty or slow connectivity. American for-profit corporation and an online social media and social networking service launched its Android-only application with the new identity of data saving chat app.

Still, Messenger Lite could appeal to a certain subset of users with limited financial resources to keep the Internet tap open, a.k.a. teens.

You won't be able to video chat through Messenger Lite while the chat heads feature that pops up over the top of other apps won't happen when using this version either.

Now people in all places can use the Messenger Lite app only on-devices running on Android4. And surely, the appearance of a data-friendly app will surely appeal to such people.

In India, the Messenger Lite app allows users to send and receive texts, photos, links, emojis, and stickers.
