Despite offering a plethora of chatting features that are designed to make it easier for people to communicate, Facebook Messenger Lite weighs in at only 10MB. This lightweight version of the app is targeted for low-end and older smartphones that do not benefit from powerful hardware specs or microSD internal storage space. However, this is not what makes Facebook Messenger Lite stand out the most.
What really makes Facebook Messenger Lite special is the fact that the software of the lightweight app has been heavily optimized to run on low-quality internet connections such as 2G. To make things even better, the heavily optimized software of Facebook Messenger Lite is also lowering the overall mobile data that the chatting app uses on a regular basis.
