If you ever wanted to use Facebook but you couldn’t because the social media app consumes too much mobile data from your smartphone or if your smartphone’s hardware specs are not powerful enough, then you should be pleased to know that there is an alternative. The alternative version of the social media app is called Facebook Lite and what makes this lightweight version of Facebook special is the fact that is has been designed for lower-end smartphones.
Facebook Lite doesn’t require a powerful CPU or a high amount of RAM and this makes Facebook accessible to everyone. To make things even better, Facebook Lite is equipped with the same plethora of features as the original version of the app.
Lower Data Mobile Consumption
The feature that makes Facebook Lite stand out the most when compared to the original app is its optimized software that lowers the total amount of mobile data that the app required in order to load the newsfeed and other features. As we all know, mobile data is infamous for being quite expensive and not using it all after surfing Facebook for a couple of hours is quite important.
Despite being a lightweight app, the developer team who works at Facebook is still releasing a constant stream of updates to Facebook Lite that improve the app’s overall performances and software stability. In fact, a brand-new update has just arrived!
Facebook Lite 126.96.36.199.110 APK
The latest update for Facebook Lite sports the 188.8.131.52.110 version number and everyone who wants to access all the software tweaks and bug fixes that it brings needs to do it manually. This is the case with all APK updates, but on the bright side of things, Facebook’s developers are eventually going to release the update OTA (over the air) which means that Facebook Lite users should not be in a rush to get it if they don’t want to manually install it.
