One of the reasons why so many people have created Facebook accounts is because the social media app is also equipped with a messenger app that is simply called “Messenger”. However, the Messenger app is infamous for taking up lots of storage space since it comes separately from Facebook. This is where Messenger Lite comes in and saves the day.
As we can tell from the app’s name, this is a lightweight version of Messenger which means that the storage space that it requires has been reduced to 10MB! To make things even better, the software of Messenger Lite has been tweaked out so that the app doesn’t up too much mobile data when loading chats and media files. Nonetheless, the reason why Messenger Lite is making headlines today is because it has just been updated.
Messenger Lite 188.8.131.52.208 Beta
What’s great about Messenger Lite is the fact that it benefits from the same full-fledged developer treatment as the original app does. Therefore, Messenger Lite is updated on a regular basis and a brand-new update for beta users has just arrived.
The new update sports the 57.0.014.208 Beta build number and it comes with software improvements. Even though software improvements might not be as exciting as new features because the changes that they make are “under the hood”, we are advising all Messenger Lite users who are enlisted in the beta program to download the new update as soon as possible because it will help Messenger Lite perform faster than ever.
Since we are talking about Messenger Lite, we also want to present some of the chatting app’s highlight feature so that everyone knows that it has to offer. Without any further ado, let’s get into it:
- Contact anyone on Messenger, Facebook or Facebook Lite.
- See when people are active and available to chat.
- Message people one-on-one or in groups to catch up or make plans.
- Send photos, links, or express yourself with stickers.
- Make one-on-one voice and video calls for free over Wi-Fi (otherwise standard data charges apply). Talk as long as you want, even with people in other countries!
