Facebook Lite android

Facebook Lite Android, Early this morning, Facebook uploaded a brand-new, slendered down version of their app called Facebook Lite to the Google Play Shop. Intended at low-end devices in emerging markets where cellular information is a little slower, we have to confess, we were plenty delighted at the prospect of a 2G-friendly variation of the normally bloated Facebook app.

Not long after installation, our optimism was met cold tough reality-- this app was little more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's nearly similar to visiting m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some crucial 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 device, convenient if you're waiting for an essential message and wish to keep up with friends without having to refresh the web browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is promoted as less than 1MB (252KB), however in fact used up 1.16 MB after setup-- requests a reasonable quantity of authorizations from your Android gadget, just like the full fledged 114MB (after installation) routine variation of the app (just without the area data). Oh, did we mention it's sluggish?



Even on WiFi, the app is slow 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" directly seems like molasses. However as we mentioned, 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 really expecting a quicker, lighter, less function heavy, Facebook app for those of who do not require all the frill of sticker label shops and so on. Unfortunately, Facebook Lite really simply does not cut it.

Facebook Lite is currently readily available for all Android 2.2+ devices in Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, or Zimbabwe through the Play Store. Those living in other places who 'd still like to offer it a try, you can download it from us through the link listed below.
