Facebook Messenger Lite: an official app, lighter, and that consumes less battery

We all know the great problem of installing Facebook on our mobile. It is proven that Facebook slows down our smartphones, but it is an app that we cannot give up. But even worse is the fact that we not only have to have Facebook, but also Facebook Messenger to be able to send and read messages. Well, now Facebook Messenger Lite has been launched, a reduced version of the official messaging application, but lighter and with lower battery consumption.

After the arrival of Facebook Lite, a reduced version of the application to use the social network, it is not so strange that they have launched Facebook Messenger Lite. At a certain point, we do not know if, due to the large number of services that they already included in a single app, which made it very heavy, or if it was due to competing with WhatsApp, Facebook and Facebook Messenger were divided, that you had to install two apps if you wanted to be able to chat with your friends. On mobile phones with little capacity or with few resources, having two apps like this meant giving up installing many more applications. This is why Facebook Lite was launched, and this is why Facebook Messenger Lite is now coming.

It is actually geared towards developing countries, and right now it has only been launched in Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Venezuela. However, as happened with Facebook Lite, it is to be expected that it will later reach more countries, and also countries where there are high-speed connections and possibilities to acquire high-level mobile phones. And, beyond being simply a useful app to consume less battery, or to consume less smartphone resources, or to occupy less space on our mobile, it is an app that gives us the option of choosing a reduced version of Facebook Messenger if we don’t use it much, but we still want to have the option of chatting with our friends. It is lighter, faster, and with fewer options, but with the basics to send and receive messages.

At the moment we do not have the possibility to download the app officially from Google Play in Spain. However, sooner than later we will have an .APK file to install the new Facebook Messenger Lite.
