Lite Facebook Com

Lite Facebook Com, Early today, Facebook uploaded a brand-new, lost weight version of their app dubbed Facebook Lite to the Google Play Shop. Targeted at low-end devices in emerging markets where cellular information is a little slower, we have to admit, we were plenty thrilled at the prospect of a 2G-friendly version of the typically bloated Facebook app.

Right after setup, our optimism was consulted with cold hard truth-- this app was little bit more than a wrapper for the mobile web view (ie, it's nearly similar to checking out m.facebook.com). Okay, so there are some essential 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 notices on your Android device, handy if you're waiting for an essential message and wish to keep up with friends without having to revitalize the web browser.

The trade off? Facebook Lite-- which is promoted as less than 1MB (252KB), however actually took up 1.16 MB after installation-- demands a fair quantity of permissions from your Android gadget, similar to the full fledged 114MB (after setup) regular variation of the app (only without the location data). Oh, did we mention it's sluggish?



Even on WiFi, the app is slow to load, slow 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 seems like molasses. However as we discussed, you do get direct access to your messages without needing to set up Facebook Messenger, so there's that.

We think Facebook truly had something here and were really wishing for 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. Regretfully, Facebook Lite really simply 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 by means of the Play Shop. Those living somewhere else who had actually still like to provide it a try, you can download it from us by means of the link listed below.
