Facebook is one of the most useful apps that you can install on your smartphone and there is no doubt about that. On the downside of things, the social media app can use up lots of internal storage space and hardware power which makes it quite annoying for people who use older or entry-level smartphones to use it. Luckily, there is an alternative social media app that offers users access to the same premium features as the original one does.
The alternative that we are talking about is none other than Facebook Lite. This is a lightweight version of the original app and what makes it stand out is the fact that it weighs in at less than 10MB. This is great for smartphones that do not support microSD cards and their internal storage space is limited to only a couple of GBs. Nonetheless, today Facebook Lite is making headlines because it has just received a new update.
Facebook Lite 126.96.36.199.116 Beta Update
If you enjoy using Facebook Lite, then we have some great news to share with you. The lightweight social media app has received a new update and it sports the 188.8.131.52.116 version number. While the update might be rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels, not all Facebook Lite users are eligible to download it right now. The reason why we are saying this is because this is a beta update.
Fortunately, everyone who uses an Android-powered smartphone is allowed to join the beta program and to make things even better, creating a beta account for Facebook Lite doesn’t take longer than a couple of minutes. With that said, let’s see what are the “goodies” that the new update brings.
The new update for Facebook Lite comes with a handful of bug fixes that are helping to improve the overall software stability. This is why we are advising all Facebook Lite users to download the new update as soon as possible.
