Facebook Lite Download

Facebook Lite Download, Early today, Facebook uploaded a new, slendered down variation of their app dubbed Facebook Lite to the Google Play Shop. Aimed at low-end gadgets in emerging markets where cellular data is a little slower, we have to confess, we were plenty delighted at the prospect of a 2G-friendly version of the usually bloated Facebook app.

Right after setup, our optimism was met cold difficult truth-- this app was little more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's nearly identical to visiting m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some key differences. 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 alerts on your Android device, useful if you're awaiting an important message and desire to keep up with pals without having to revitalize the internet browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is advertised as less than 1MB (252KB), however actually took up 1.16 MB after setup-- requests a fair quantity of consents from your Android device, just like the complete fledged 114MB (after installation) regular version of the app (only without the place information). Oh, did we mention 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 notifications. Even with a high-end Snapdragon 801 equipped Android device, the "app" directly 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 truly hoping for a quicker, lighter, less feature heavy, Facebook app for those of who do not require all the frill of sticker stores and so forth. Regretfully, Facebook Lite truly just does not 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 Shop. Those living in other places who 'd still like to offer it a shot, you can download it from us through the link listed below.
