Facebook Messenger Lite

12 months ago from , Pretend designer and product person

From the press release:

Messenger Lite is under 10MB, so it’s fast to install and quick to start up. It includes Messenger’s core experiences such as messaging, sending and receiving photos and links, and receiving stickers... Messenger Lite is starting to roll out to people in Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Venezuela. Look for Messenger Lite in other countries in the coming months.

I think the degree to which FB engrains accessibility in their products is admirable.

    Why not just make the original app un-bloated in the first place.

    So tired of 100+ meg apps especially when it's just flat colours and vector assets.
