Facebook Lite Free Download

Facebook Lite Free Download, Early today, Facebook published a brand-new, lost weight version of their app called Facebook Lite to the Google Play Store. Intended at low-end gadgets in emerging markets where cellular information is a little slower, we have to confess, we were plenty thrilled at the possibility of a 2G-friendly variation of the generally puffed up Facebook app.

Right after setup, our optimism was met with cold tough truth-- this app was little more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's almost similar to checking out 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 provide you with push notices on your Android gadget, convenient if you're awaiting an essential message and wish to keep up with friends without needing to revitalize the browser.

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

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

We think Facebook actually had something here and were actually hoping for a quicker, lighter, less feature heavy, Facebook app for those of who don't require all the frill of sticker stores and so forth. Sadly, Facebook Lite really just doesn't cut it.

Facebook Lite is presently available for all Android 2.2+ devices in Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, or Zimbabwe through the Play Shop. Those living somewhere else who had actually still like to provide it a shot, you can download it from us through the link below.
