We think it’s safe to say that Facebook is considered as a “must-have” app by everyone who uses smartphones nowadays. Facebook has changed the way people interact with each other online and there is no doubt about that. The great thing about Facebook is the fact that the social media app doesn’t offer its services only to people who use powerful and expensive smartphones, but also to people that might use older devices as their daily carriers. The way that the social media app does that is through Facebook Lite.
Introducing: Facebook Lite
If this is the first time that you are reading about Facebook Lite, then all you need to know about it is that its software has been tweaked out and optimized in order to run on older and lower-end smartphones. What this basically means is that Facebook Lite doesn’t take up too much storage space and also that it will not use up all mobile data in order to load the newsfeed and other types of media files.
The reason why Facebook Lite is making headlines on our website today is because the developers who are in charge of it have recently released a new update. The update sports the 220.127.116.11.115 version number and it is being rolled out via official OTA (over the air) channels to everyone who uses an Android powered smartphone. With that said, Facebook Lite fans should make sure to keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network in order to download the new update ASAP.
Nonetheless, the new update comes with “improvements for reliability and speed” according to the patch notes included by the developers of Facebook Lite in the update logs. This means that Facebook Lite will run faster than ever after installing the new update.
