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

A lightweight version of Facebook messenger which consumes just 10MB is coming with no unnecessary features.

The application has 50+ million downloads now, showing that it has been a hit in the countries it launched. However, this week Facebook made the app available to everyone Australia using an Android device (unfortunately there's no iOS version) as well.

Facebook first launched Messenger Lite in five bandits with low bandwidth strength back in 2016.

He went on: 'It's the one thing about country music that's always been the centre of it - it is community. At the start of the vigil, Esten likened the country community to that of a family.

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.

But now, the company is expanding to developed markets too and can come in handy to people users who wish to avoid burning away fewer data from their limited internet package.

Once you've got the app on Android from the Google Play Store you'll then need to open up the app and sign in with your normal account information, much like if you were setting up the normal Messenger app on your phone.

Twins face Yankees tonight in AL Wild Card
Molitor has said that starter José Berríos , a 14-game victor this season, will also be available in relief tonight . The AL wild-card victor will face the AL Central champion Cleveland Indians beginning Thursday at 7:38 p.m.

The Lite version of Facebook Messenger includes all of the key features of the messaging tool, but strips out some of the extras such as Day and lenses.

One of the main reasons cited by Facebook to introduce Messenger Lite was that there are over a billion people who still don't have access to high speed 3G or 4G network.

The Messenger Lite app uses simple and minimal visuals - which ensures that the app isn't heavy on graphics. Messenger Lite eliminates some of the newer and more processor-heavy features in the traditional Facebook Messenger app.

Goldman Sachs studying whether to trade bitcoins

The Lite version of the app has been popular among users in Western markets, with many of them sideloading it to their devices. And surely, the appearance of a data-friendly app will surely appeal to such people. People can also use the app to manage groups.
