Facebook launches Messenger Lite app for basic and Low cost Android phones

Facebook has launched Messenger Lite, a slimmed down version of its mobile messaging app that’s optimized for use on basic Android devices and slow connections.

Messenger Lite is under 10MB, so it’s fast to install and quick to start up. It includes Messenger’s core experiences such as messaging, sending and receiving photos and links, and receiving stickers. Messenger Lite uses the same bolt logo as Messenger, but with colors reversed. The bolt is blue with a white chat bubble background.

Messenger Lite is starting to roll out to people in Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Venezuela.

It looks like it hasn’t yet hit Google Play, so you might have to wait a bit before you can try it yourself if you’re in any of those countries.
