Facebook Lite android

Facebook Lite Android, Early this morning, Facebook published a new, lost weight variation of their app dubbed Facebook Lite to the Google Play Shop. Aimed at low-end devices in emerging markets where cellular information is a little slower, we need to confess, we were plenty excited at the possibility of a 2G-friendly version of the generally puffed up Facebook app.

Right after setup, our optimism was met cold hard reality-- this app was bit more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's almost identical 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 offer you with push notifications on your Android device, handy if you're waiting for an important message and wish to stay up to date with buddies without needing to refresh the browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is marketed as less than 1MB (252KB), but really took up 1.16 MB after setup-- requests a reasonable quantity of authorizations from your Android gadget, just like the complete fledged 114MB (after setup) routine version of the app (just without the area information). Oh, did we discuss it's slow?



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

We think Facebook truly had something here and were really expecting a quicker, lighter, less feature heavy, Facebook app for those of who do not need all the frill of sticker shops and so forth. Regretfully, Facebook Lite actually just does not 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 Store. Those living somewhere else who had actually still want to provide it a try, you can download it from us by means of the link below.
