Facebook Messenger Lite now available to save data on stateside Android phones

Considering that Facebook Messenger Lite has been available only in developing countries, what is Facebook saying about wireless service in the U.S. now that the data saving version of the app is offered in the states? With some of the data munching features like Messenger Day and selfie lenses absent from the app, users are less likely to consume obscene amounts of data while using it.
Actually, Facebook really isn't making a statement about U.S. wireless service. It merely is offering up another option for those Android users who need to stay connected using a messaging app, but don't want to consume or waste data playing around with other features. In addition to saving on data consumption, at 10MB the app will also save on storage space when you install it.
Besides the U.S., Messenger Lite is now available in Canada, Ireland and the U.K. If you want a no-nonsense messaging app that won't eat up all of your data by giving you extra features that you don't want or need, you can install Messenger Lite by clicking on the sourcelink.

Android needs a lot more like these, it's resource hungry. That is why ios is better in resource management

well, idk how much it does better than on Android, but on iOS you still need 2gb of ram to run Messenger properly. On the iPhone 6 Plus, if you scroll through tens of photo thumbnails of a chat's history, Messenger will crash, bringing you straight back to the home screen. Every, single, time. That doesn't happen on the old LG G2 with 2gb of ram running Android.
