Facebook Messenger Lite now available to save data on stateside Android phones

This light and data-efficient application is no longer just for emerging countries. Now, the app is finally officially available in Canada. However, the app is also flawless for users looking for a stripped-down, simplified version of Messenger that is also a smaller file size.

Considering that Facebook Messenger Lite has been available only in developing countries, what is Facebook saying about wireless service in the US now that the data saving version of the app is offered in the states? It works with all Android devices running Gingerbread v2.3 or above. According to a statement, "At this time, we've chose to end our support of the Messenger emoji set to focus our attention on other features that help people express themselves and make the Messenger experience fun and engaging". The app is nearly exclusively a messaging and calling application, meaning that features available in the full Messenger app - like apps, gifs and the M virtual assistant - are not available in Messenger Lite. In addition to saving on data consumption, at 10MB the app will also save on storage space when you install it.

Although Messenger Lite was initially created to get people onboard Facebook's platform with entry-level handsets, it has managed to gain traction amongst users looking to get better control of data consumption.
