Facebook wants everyone to use its social network and to use its apps.
The problem for users on Android in some countries is that their connections are slow and it makes using the full-blown version of Facebook messenger a bit tedious.
To help fix that issue Facebook has announced that it has a new Messenger Lite stand-alone app that will be for Android devices.
Messenger Lite will allow users to sent text, photos, and links to anyone with Messenger or Messenger Lite installed on their device.
The app itself is also smaller making it take less space on basic devices that have little storage to begin with.
It has all the core experiences that full Messenger offers such as messaging, sending and receiving photos and links, and receiving stickers.
