As everyone surely knows by now, Facebook is the world’s most popular social media app. There are more than two billion people using this app on a daily basis and this speaks volumes about the performances that Facebook offers. On the other hand, Facebook is also infamous for draining mobile data and for requiring powerful hardware specs. Fortunately, here is where Facebook Lite comes in and provides everyone with an alternative.
Facebook Lite is a lightweight version of the original app and it weighs in at only 10MB. However, what makes Facebook Lite stand out the most is the fact that its software has been optimized to lower the total amount of mobile data that it needs in order to load media content and the newsfeed on Facebook. The way that the developers of Facebook Lite have been able to do this is by constantly releasing a stream of updates.
Facebook Lite 220.127.116.11.217 Beta Update
The best thing that Facebook Lite users can do if they want to access all the latest features and software tweaks that the app receives is to enroll in the beta program. It takes less than a couple of minutes to enroll in the beta program and the only thing that users need to do in exchange for the privilege of accessing all the latest features ahead of everyone else is to provide the developers with feedback.
With that said, a new update for Facebook Lite has just arrived and it sports the 18.104.22.168.217 beta version number. The update is being rolled out to all Facebook Lite testers right now via OTA (over the air) channels and it comes with lots of software improvements, including bug fixes that take care of various issues which caused the app to lag.
