The lightweight Facebook app has been available for Android smartphones for a few years. It is a great alternative for users that have low-speed connections or phones that have low specs.
No matter the version of the Facebook app – be it the main app or the Lite version, users get continuous updates that aim to improve user experience. Today we spotted the latest update for the Facebook Lite app (beta version), which reached 126.96.36.199.100.
Let’s check out what the update brings this time to the beta users.
Facebook Lite 188.8.131.52.100 (beta version)
For the users that are in the beta program, Facebook Lite has reached version 184.108.40.206.100 beta, which brings “Improvements for reliability and speed.” While this version hasn’t brought new features to the app, it does come with bug fixes and tweaks that should increase performance and stability.
Facebook Lite gets continuous updates, and this beta version is available to beta testers who have enrolled in the program. If you are one of the beta testers, you can get Facebook Lite 220.127.116.11.100 beta from APK Mirror by following this link.
Facebook Lite Features
Facebook Lite also has a very small file size, compared to the main app. While Facebook has around 57 MB, Facebook Lite only takes nearly 2 MB space – the reduction is over 90% in space. The Lite version of Facebook also uses less CPU and RAM for a good experience on cheaper phones that do not have enough power for the full app. Moreover, Facebook Lite works on older phones that are not supported by the app.
As we mentioned above, the Lite version also works on 2G networks and unstable internet connections. It uses less data and won’t show images in high resolution or autoplay videos. Other than that, you will get a fully featured Facebook. The design of the app seems a bit more dated, but it comes with all the features – like, comment, post and browse the news feed.
