Made for phones with limited space and connectivity, this may be the lightest version of Facebook for Android yet.
The official Facebook app takes up approximately 30MB of device storage, loads slowly and requires two separate apps if you want to message your friends. If you’re using a budget Android device, or your connection hovers around 2G speeds, Facebook Lite is a better alternative.
Facebook has not made this slimmed-down version of its app globally available on the Play Store. If you want to check it out, you’ll have to manually install it on your device. To get a copy of the app, visit AndroidPolice’s APKMirror website and download it directly onto your device. After the download is finished, tap the notification and install the app.
