Facebook announced a new version of their app for Android that uses less data and works well across all network conditions hailed as the Facebook Lite.
More than a billion people around the world access Facebook from a range of mobile devices on varying networks. In many areas, networks can be slow and not able to support all the functionality found in Facebook for Android. Facebook Lite was built for these situations, giving people a reliable Facebook experience when bandwidth is at a minimum.
Facebook Lite is less than 1MB so it is fast to install and quick to load. It includes Facebook’s core experiences like News Feed, status updates, photos, notifications and more.
Facebook is now available in countries across Asia and it will be rolled out in parts of Latin America, Africa and Europe over the coming weeks.
