Facebook, Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Considering Expanding Its Messenger Lite To More Countries

Facebook Messenger Lite

Facebook Messenger has gotten to be a bloated mess. Well, if you've been cursing Zuckerberg's name when any of the above happens, know this: Messenger Lite is now available in the USA along with Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland. It originally launched in five countries, Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Venezuela, in October 2016. The app is ideal for those who use basic Android smartphones, as messenger Lite app will use up fewer resources.

Facebook's apps are infamous for the amount of data and battery they soak up, which has led to some people ditching the social network's ever-growing suite of apps.

The Messenger Lite app has now found a home in more countries today.

Strange's losing campaign had a total budget of about $30 million, while Moore's winning campaign only spent about $2.5 million. Mr Moore is now in the lead to win the seat in the general election on December 12 against Democratic candidate Doug Jones .

According to Emojipedia, WhatsApp's new emojis were discovered in the latest Android beta where it seems that for the most part, it has been inspired by the same emojis that Apple uses for its iOS platform.

You won't be able to video chat through Messenger Lite while the chat heads feature that pops up over the top of other apps won't happen when using this version either. Facebook, in an announcement today said, that the data-sipping app will now officially debut in the US, UK, Canada and Ireland. It's only 10MB in size, which is a significant cut down from the original Facebook Messenger app's download size of 46MB.

Make the most of your data.

. And surely, the appearance of a data-friendly app will surely appeal to such people. This is probably one of the main reason why Facebook has made a decision to now bring it to the U.S. and the other countries mentioned. The new Lite is available on play store in these four countries. Just like the regular one, it is also missing some aspects or features which quite a large number of people find useful.
