Download Facebook Lite

Download Facebook Lite, Early today, Facebook submitted a brand-new, slimmed down variation of their app called Facebook Lite to the Google Play Store. Focused on low-end devices in emerging markets where cellular information is a little slower, we have to admit, we were plenty excited at the possibility of a 2G-friendly version of the usually bloated Facebook app.

Soon after installation, our optimism was met with cold hard reality-- this app was little bit more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's nearly identical to visiting m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some essential distinctions. There's no videos (like, at all) and unlike opening Facebook in your phone's web browser, Facebook Lite will offer you with push notifications on your Android gadget, helpful if you're waiting on an essential message and want to keep up with pals without needing to revitalize the web browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is advertised as less than 1MB (252KB), however in fact used up 1.16 MB after installation-- demands a fair amount of permissions from your Android gadget, just like the complete fledged 114MB (after installation) regular version of the app (just without the area data). Oh, did we mention it's sluggish?



Even on WiFi, the app is sluggish to load, sluggish to scroll, and slow to change between News Feed, your messages, and notices. Even with a high-end Snapdragon 801 equipped Android gadget, the "app" straight up feels like molasses. However as we discussed, you do get direct access to your messages without needing to install Facebook Messenger, so there's that.

We believe Facebook truly had something here and were actually expecting a quicker, lighter, less function heavy, Facebook app for those of who don't need all the frill of sticker label shops and the like. Regretfully, Facebook Lite truly simply doesn't cut it.

Facebook Lite is currently available for all Android 2.2+ gadgets in Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, or Zimbabwe through the Play Store. Those living elsewhere who had actually still want to give it a try, you can download it from us by means of the link listed below.
