Facebook launched this Messenger Lite in October last year, but up until this point it was available only for a few regions. The app is now out in 150 additional countries, including Nigeria, Germany, Colombia, Italy, Vietnam, Algeria, Morocco, Peru, Turkey, Japan, Taiwan and the Netherlands to mention but a few.

Messenger Lite, just like the Facebook Lite app requires less memory and processing power to operate, and it even uses less data than the regular messenger app. Below are some highlights of the features of this app.


✔️ Installs fast – The app is smaller, so it downloads quickly and uses less storage space.
✔️ Loads quickly - You can send text, photos and links to anyone who uses Messenger, Messenger Lite or Facebook Lite.
✔️ Uses less data - Be more efficient with your mobile data and save space for other apps. Using less data will save you more money.
✔️ Works on all networks - It's designed for 2G networks and areas with slow or unstable internet connections. If you don't have a connection, your messages will be delivered when you have signal.
✔️ Works on most Android phones - you can use it on almost any type of Android phone, new or old, including Gingerbread.

  1. This is great

    I once downloaded the app from www.crazy4android.blogspot.in and after a while when i clicked it, it was telling me that this app is not available for your country.
    I then uninstall it

    Thanks for the update

  2. I'm currently flexing this app in one of my 1gb RAM phone.

    Great work from Facebook

  6. The message pop up in this particular version of Facebook messenger is not as fast and real time as in the main app.

    But all the same, it's better because of its small size.
