Messenger Lite is the perfect app if you want to enjoy the core features of Facebook Messenger while only consuming a few resources and still using it on older devices or in places with poor network coverage. Featuring a minimal but nice-looking interface, it is a good trade-off between modernity and minimalism.

What is Messenger Lite?

Messenger Lite is an instant messaging application developed by Facebook as part of the Facebook ecosystem. Providing a lighter environment compared to the Messenger app, it focuses on more essential features like instant messaging and calling. Still, it has the great advantage of consuming much fewer pieces of data and being compatible with older devices.

  • Transfers: You can still transfer images and photos as it will compress them for seamless transfers.
