Facebook brings data plan-saving Messenger Lite to US Androids

After all, they have been trying to get more people on the Messenger platform.

It is estimated the app has been downloaded around 47 million times - largely by India and Brazil.

FACEBOOK has officially launched a new version of its Messenger app that's created to use less data. The app was first released in Kenya, Malaysia, Tunisia, Venezuela, and Sri Lanka, and was later expanded to more than 100 developing countries.

Officers say the driver intentionally swerved the van off the main road to mount the footpath, where he hit four pedestrians. He then jumped out of the vehicle and stabbed the cop "several times" and fled on foot as a dramatic manhunt was launched.

The app is available for Android only. But now its expansion into Facebook's top developed world markets makes it a tool for penny-pinching users like teenagers who want to avoid burning away their pricey megabytes but still stay in touch.

Messenger Lite was previously only available in developing countries, but Facebook apparently decided that it will also be useful in the United States.

Messenger Lite is like a scaled down version of the original Messenger app, without a number of features from the app including the Snapchat-like features and games, which provides for a quicker and more user friendly messaging app.

One of the main reasons cited by Facebook to introduce Messenger Lite was that there are over a billion people who still don't have access to high speed 3G or 4G network. The Lite version, however, measures just 10MB in size - which means it won't take up too much storage on your phone - and is watered-down as to not hog data each month.

Messenger Lite was initially intended for markets where Internet bandwidth remains a premium.

Lite version is developed for mobile data-constrained countries and entry-level Android smartphones.
