WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger To Get A New Set Of Emojis

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

After all, they have been trying to get more people on the Messenger platform. The new Facebook's Android app is also missing some useful features like video calling and chat heads. Nothing more, nothing less.

Messenger Lite basically offers the same features as the standard versions, but eliminates data draining features like Messenger Day and selfie lenses in order to ensure users don't consume huge amounts of data while using the app. That is unless you're on iOS. But now its expansion into Facebook's top developed world markets makes it a tool for penny-pinching users like teenagers who want to avoid burning away their pricey megabytes but still stay in touch. It's called Messenger Lite and is a new, limited version of the app you're likely used to using. The app was first released in Kenya, Malaysia, Tunisia, Venezuela, and Sri Lanka, and was later expanded to more than 100 developing countries.

The app was originally designed for people who lived in countries with slower Internet connections, although Facebook has now chose to release the app in lots more countries.

Messenger Lite would serve as an opportunity to find out whether or not one is inclined to the sticks-to-the-basics design.


The Messenger Lite app uses simple and minimal visuals - which ensures that the app isn't heavy on graphics. But, it is also ideal for users who don't want bloatware on their device that comes with the regular Messenger app.

This means that using Lite could save you a few quid every month.

The app is available on the Google Play Store, and it is compatible with Android devices that are running on as low as Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Still this is a good thing, because people have to deal with data limits in developed countries as well.
