Messenger Lite is a lightweight version of Facebook's full Messenger app. However, Lite solves countless issues users encounter in the regular app. Facebook Messenger is known for major battery drain issues and for bogging down a device's resources. The app even utilizes a lot of mobile data and requires a fairly strong connection as well. Luckily, Messenger Lite is designed to run on low-end hardware regardless of data speeds.

The Lite version of Messenger includes most features found in the full app. Facebook users can sign on and keep in touch with their friends through text-based messaging. Within the app, it's possible to see who's online and then interact with those individuals. Text, image sharing, and emojis are supported in the Lite version today. Messages are sent in the most efficient manner possible, which reduces data usage in a noticeable manner.

Unfortunately, Messenger Lite lacks core features found in Messenger, including video and audio calls. The main draw of Lite is its data saving features as well as its lightweight nature. Lite doesn't draw too much power from the battery, especially compared to its fully featured counterpart. Plus, minimal resource and data usage ensure the app runs smoothly with even the spottiest of connections.

Messenger Lite is optimized for low-end hardware and for users with 2G data speeds. Then again, most smartphone owners can take advantage of this app for great benefits. Lite runs hours longer than full Messenger on identical devices. Data usage between both versions shows a major advantage for Lite, too. Without a doubt, this version of Facebook Messenger is worth a look.


  • Less battery consumption, resource use than Facebook Messenger.
  • Retains many of the features found in full Messenger.
  • Excellent performance, even with limited data speeds.


  • Doesn't retain every feature from Messenger.

We regularly update Messenger Lite to make it better for you. Get the latest version for all the available features. Thanks for using the app!
