Facebook Messenger's data saving Lite version rolls out worldwide

Facebook launches Messenger Lite in US, UK, Canada & Ireland

You might not have noticed this, but Facebook and Facebook Messenger had different emoji sets.

Facebook Messenger Lite, a dialed down version of Facebook's chat app is expanding to the US, UK, Canada, and Ireland. It rolled out first to five countries, namely Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela. However, the sad bit is the fact that there doesn't exist any such thing as Messenger Lite for iPhones and some sources indicate that Facebook has no plans underway to release it. 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. However, considering the fact that the app consumes a significant amount of data and occupies a lot of space, Facebook also introduced a Messenger Lite app. The new Lite skips Messenger Day and selfie lenses as they employ more data, it comprises of many new features as well. American for-profit corporation and an online social media and social networking service launched its Android-only application with the new identity of data saving chat app. Facebook has not yet provided an indication as to if or when it may bring Messenger Lite to Apple's mobile platform.

As the day went on, many teams followed this course of action, with various players choosing to continue their own protests. He added: "I think they are afraid of their players, if you want to know the truth, and I think it's disgraceful".

The app was originally designed for people who lived in countries with slower Internet connections, although Facebook has now chose to release the app in lots more countries. And surely, the appearance of a data-friendly app will surely appeal to such people. If it can keep people on Messenger, it's more likely to retain them in the rest of its family of apps. That is not to say that adults won't use it. People in developed countries also have to deal with expensive data. This is one of the core reasons that stimulated the introduction of Messenger Lite.
