Facebook Messenger Lite launched in 132 countries

New York: Facebook Messenger Lite was today launched in more than 132 countries including Vietnam, Nigeria, Peru, Turkey, Germany, Japan and the Netherlands.



It is also a stand-alone version of Messenger for Android for markets with slower than average internet speeds.
Messenger Lite was rolled out in Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Venezuela last October.



“For Facebook, which has in months aggressively added Snapchat-like features to its main app, Instagram, and Messenger, the expansion of its Lite versions gives it another advantage over its rival,” technology website theverge.com reported on Friday.
