Over the period of time, the Facebook Messenger app has become more than only a way to chat with friends. The app lets the users to send stickers, animations, cool GIFs, video calling, play games with friends and even send cash. However, in order to serve all in one functionality, the app consumes a lot of mobile data and needs adequate internet connectivity. The app also started taking more storage in the devices due to the regular add-ons. After Messenger Lite, users get the option to avoid all the alluring features of the app and only left with the messaging service.

The unadorned version of the messenger takes only 10 MB of storage and able to perform even with the sluggish mobile network. The app only serves the purpose of messaging to the Facebook friends by cutting down all the features. The app was originally created with the aim to help the Facebook across the region with poor mobile network and expensive data plans. But the users find the app more suitable even outside the company’s targeted markets.

The app currently available for the Android users only and the company has no plans to release one for the iOS users . The app is very helpful in saving the data storage on the phone, but still, users may miss the useful features like chat heads and video calling. It totally depends on the preference of the users either they want to switch to data friendly version or stick to the fun providing Messenger app.
