Facebook Messenger Lite

on Facebook App Developers Forum at Fri Apr 28, 2017 12:03 pm

Facebook has been actively competing against Snapchat for some time now and with this new launch it is most probably trying to gain yet another competitive advantage over them.

Millions of potential users with older or low and mid-tier smartphones will now benefit from this lighter, faster version of Facebook Messenger. With limited features, it has been engineered for citizens from emerging countries, with lower bandwidth, memory and processing power requirements and it's available for older Android versions, in a similar fashion to Facebook Lite.

How will this affect the potential for Facebook App development? Do they open the door to apps targeting other market segments?

This feature surely gave Facebook a boost and now its user base is much more happier than that of Snapchat. As Facebook adopted many of the features in order to compete with Snapchat and to its good luck these features helped Facebook in crushing Snapchat.
