Facebook's Messenger Lite app is officially available in Canada, Report

Facebook is not that far behind either, having already launched #Messenger Lite in similar countries whose internet is not quite up to snuff with the West. April this year, however, Facebook made the Android available to around a hundred other countries.

Facebook, he said, decided on the five initial countries to launch Messenger Lite in because there are a lot of Messenger users in these countries on older devices. It works with all Android devices running Gingerbread v2.3 or above.

But you'll be able to talk to anyone who uses Messenger, Facebook or Facebook Lite. Also, Lite version saves data as well. This is one of the core reasons that stimulated the introduction of Messenger Lite. The White design is preserved with three tabs for the conversation list, contacts, and user's profile page wherein settings for tweaking notifications is available.

According to commentators, while the Messenger Lite helps people in places with sluggish mobile connectivity, users who would rather escape the snowballing features on the main app will also find it useful. Thankfully, the Lite version has retained the third-party sticker packs and voice calling facility.

You'll then be greeted with your normal list of active chats with your most recent messages, but a few features you may be used to using will be missing. The app is now available to download from the Google Play store in the UK, Ireland, Canada and the US.

Since then, Messenger Lite rolled out to over 100 countries earlier in 2017, but there were some notable exclusions, which included the US, UK, Ireland, and Canada.

Facebook released Lite version an year ago. We will be updating this article once it goes live for iOS users too.
