Facebook Inc. launched a slimmed down version of its Messenger chat app. New App, which is called “Messenger Lite”, is useful for the people who used older phones that don’t have enough room to store or ability to run the full-featured application due to slower internet speeds or other issues.
Users with Android phones will still be able to use the core features of Messenger, including the ability to send text messages, photos and links but will not be able to make video or voice calls or make payments.
Initially the app will be launch in Kenya Malaysia, Srilanka, Tunisia and Venezuela, but hit other countries in the coming months.
“We want to make sure Messenger products are truly for everyone,” David Marcus, head of Messenger, said in an interview.
