Facebook and its chat app Messenger are notorious for taking up much of the smartphone’s resources, hence why their mobile (Lite) versions have been developed some time ago. In the beginning, Messenger Lite was available only in five countries: Tunisia, Malaysia, Venezuela, Sri Lanka, Kenya. As you might have noticed, these are all developing countries, where most people cannot afford a high-end smartphone that would have no problem handling Facebook and Messenger – hence why the Lite version of them was released there. Now, though, the list of Lite-approved countries has grown dra-ma-tically. It now encompasses 137 countries, among them Algeria, Peru, Germany, Colombia, Japan, Netherlands, Vietnam etc (so not only developing countries this time). The change is effective immediately, so users from these countries probably already have their Messengers updated.
