Facebook is taking another step in its pledge to connect the world. The new Messenger Lite will bring the Messenger experience to older and basic Android phones, even in areas with poor mobile internet connections.
Messenger Lite is an optimised version of the original Messenger app. Taking up just 10MB on a phone’s memory, Messenger Lite is equipped with most of the core features of Messenger. You can send texts, photos and links. However, you will not be able to send GIFs, video, or stickers.
Facebook wants to connect the world, and Messenger Lite is certainly going to help do it. Alongside Facebook Lite, a basic version of Facebook launched last June in India and the Philippines. Now Messenger Lite will help connect people with basic Android phones, and/or slow mobile internet connections.
Messenger Lite will be available in Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Venezuela, first – other countries will be coming over the next few months.
