Facebook Lite Apk

Facebook Lite Apk, Early this early morning, Facebook uploaded a brand-new, lost weight version of their app dubbed Facebook Lite to the Google Play Store. Aimed at low-end gadgets in emerging markets where cellular data is a little slower, we have to admit, we were plenty thrilled at the prospect of a 2G-friendly variation of the generally puffed up Facebook app.

Soon after installation, our optimism was met with cold tough reality-- this app was little more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's almost similar to going to m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some key distinctions. There's no videos (like, at all) and unlike opening Facebook in your phone's web internet browser, Facebook Lite will provide you with push notices on your Android gadget, convenient if you're awaiting an essential message and wish to stay up to date with friends without having to revitalize the web browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is marketed as less than 1MB (252KB), but actually took up 1.16 MB after installation-- requests a fair quantity of authorizations from your Android device, comparable to the complete fledged 114MB (after installation) routine variation of the app (only without the location data). Oh, did we discuss it's sluggish?

Even on WiFi, the app is sluggish to load, slow to scroll, and slow to change between News Feed, your messages, and notifications. Even with a high-end Snapdragon 801 equipped Android device, the "app" straight up seems like molasses. But as we pointed out, you do get direct access to your messages without having to set up Facebook Messenger, so there's that.

We believe Facebook really had something here and were actually expecting a quicker, lighter, less feature heavy, Facebook app for those of who don't require all the frill of sticker stores and the like. Unfortunately, Facebook Lite truly just does not cut it.

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