Even though Facebook might offer a premium user experience and a plethora of features, we have to admit that the social media app is infamous for taking up lots of processing power in order to run. Not just that, but Facebook also has a bad reputation for using up mobile data really fast when it comes to loading the newsfeed and other types of media files. Fortunately, this is where Facebook Lite comes in and offers the perfect alternative.
Introducing Facebook Lite
The first thing that we want to mention about Facebook Lite is that just like its name implies, this app is a stripped down version of Facebook in terms of hardware requirements. This means that Facebook Lite can be installed on older smartphones without any issues and to make things even better, the software of Facebook Lite has been optimized to lower the overall amount of mobile data that the app needs in order to load the newsfeed.
New 126.96.36.199.100 Beta Update
The reason why we are talking about Facebook Lite today is because the beta version of the app has just been updated. The developers who are in charge of Facebook Lite are releasing new updates for the app every week and the latest one arrived today (April 10th).
The new update changes Facebook Lite’s build number to 188.8.131.52.100 and as previously noted, it’s exclusive to beta testers. Luckily, enrolling the beta program is not complicated at all and everyone can do it in less than five minutes.
Facebook Lite fans should be pleased to find out that the new update focuses on enhancing the app’s overall performances. Therefore, no one should be shocked to find out that after installing the new beta update for Facebook Lite, the app will run faster than ever.
