The update version of Facebook Lite is here, and the primary advantages of using this application is that it utilizes lesser system resources compared to the original app, which is known for its battery hogging properties. We will be walking you through what sort of changes have been introduced in the latest update, but since it’s a beta release, there aren’t lots of changes added compared to the previous versions. However, if you want to run an application on an Android device that does not impress in the hardware department, then Facebook Lite is definitely for you.

The current version carries a space of 1.15MB so it will easily be able to install on your device without question. There are several advantages of running Facebook Lite, even though you will be stripped of some features that are present in the original, and might we add, resource hungry application. The app has been designed to provide smoothened functionality for low-priced handsets. Where the regular version of the app will chew away processor and RAM resources, Facebook Lite has been designed to minimize the use of these system resources, thus conserving battery life as a result as well.

Because lesser amounts of content, dada and textures will be loaded, it’s also going to go easy on your data connection. If you’re in an area that’s void of a Wi-Fi network and you need to switch to your mobile connection to start checking for the latest updates on the social network, Facebook Lite will reduce the amount of packet data consumed so you never have to run into bill issues in the future.

If you want to get your hands on Facebook Lite 16.0.0.4.143 beta, then the latest version is available here. If you feel that the original version is not performing up to your expectations, you can always choose to download and installing the previous APK files as well.
