Facebook Lite was released early last year, and it's pretty good - it takes up less space than the regular Facebook app and consumes much less data. As a follow-up, Messenger Lite is now available, meaning phones with countries where data is thin on the ground and people with small amounts of storage can use Messenger as well.
The obvious play here is to get more people on the Messenger platform, but it's good to see Facebook trying to get the countries with older technology online. Messenger Lite is rolling out gradually to Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela starting from today.
