Explore the unique features of Messenger Lite for Android
« on: November 07, 2018, 09:33:09 AM »
Facebook has launched a new Messenger Lite app, which is a watered-down version of the Facebook Messenger app. The app is suitable for low-performance Android phones and weak network connections.

You can click the link to download the app.

Messenger Lite supports instant messages for low Android configuration

The Messenger Lite app was officially released in markets such as Kenya, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Tunisia, and Venezuela, then  expanded into other markets in the following months. Facebook Messenger Lite has had global support since April 2017.

Messenger Lite is geared towards emerging markets. Designed specifically for low-memory as well as slow-speed phones, Messenger Lite uses less network data to keep it stable even when it has a slow network speed.

Messenger Lite for Android fully supports core features like sending messages, images and links just like the regular Messenger software. Of course, you should not be surprised that the Stories and Chatbots features are cut off in this lightweight messaging app.

You can not make calls, send stickers, or audio messages. All you can do is send messages and pictures, turn the sound on or off, set vibration or ringtones for  conversations. Because it is a watered-down version, Messenger Lite streamlines the features that are deemed unnecessary and speeds up significantly as a result.

Features of the Messenger Lite app on Android

·      Quick installation: Due to its small size, the download speed of Messenger Lite is very quick - it installs in a snap and takes up very little storage space.

·      Fast-acting: Users can send messages, images or links to anyone using Messenger or Messenger Lite.

·      Spend less data: It runs on Android devices of low configuration smoothly and does not need to consume much network data, saving space for other apps. Using Messenger Lite will save you a lot of money if you connect to the Internet via 3G.

·      Works on all networks: Messenger Lite is designed to work on both 2G networks and areas with slow and unstable Internet connections. If your network connection is out, your messages will be saved and sent automatically when there is network signal.

·      Works on most Android phones: You can use Messenger Lite for most Android 2.3+ phones, new or old, including Gingerbread.

·      No video calls

Though designed for Android phones with low configuration, if you're using a high-end device but just want plain texting, Messenger Lite is not a bad choice. So far, Facebook has not announced when the Messenger Lite version will be available for iOS.

Install Messenger Lite APK

To install the Messenger Lite APK file, you need to set up your device so that it can install non-Google Play apps. To set this up, you need to go to Settings> Security> in the Device Manager section, select Unknown sources (Allow installation of apps not from the Play Store).

Messenger Lite compared to Messenger

Storage capacity and RAM

Messenger apps, as well as Facebook apps, are always among the top RAM consuming apps. A new installation also takes up about 150MB of your phone's storage space. In the process of using, it also consumes 100MB of RAM or more with a maximum usage of 300MB, which is a hassle for those who use phones with only 1GB of RAM.

On the other hand, Messenger Lite only takes up 28MB of storage. The average RAM usage is about 29MB, and the maximum RAM usage is about 70MB.

User interface

The user interface is one of the essential parts that affects the experience of an app. An ideal interface must be both simple and effective. Messenger has been around for a long time, and even after Facebook bought WhatsApp, it is still a popular messaging app.

However, with recent updates, the Messenger app has gone far beyond the original. But up to now, the Messenger app is not consistent. When you install Messenger, it's only blue. But after a reboot, it changes a lot. There are tabs at the top of the page, and there are many icons on the navigation bar at the bottom of the page. Most of Messenger's features are centered at the bottom - including Home, Contacts, Camera, and Games. Message, Activity, Group and Call buttons are at the top with the search bar and “ I “ for the user profile. For many people, it's a mess.

The user interface of Messenger Lite, on the other hand, couldn’t be simpler, and it does not have any negative impact on the user experience. It focuses primarily on "messaging" because it lacks a lot of extra features. For example, the Messenger Group feature has its tab, where you can create groups. On Messenger Lite, you can create new groups by clicking on the floating button + also used to create new messages, which is short for creating/adding widgets. It seems much more intuitive than Messenger.


Messenger Lite is better than Messenger for the user interface, but its functionality is far behind. With Messenger Lite you can send and receive messages, photos, voice notes and make/receive calls with Wi-Fi. Everything involves communication and chatting. But it lacks some features compared to the original app.

The most significant difference between Messenger and Messenger Lite is the ability to make video calls. To make the secret conversations, you just click on the “I“ section, however on the Lite version you have to press the "I" button in each conversation. Besides, Lite does not support GIFs or stickers, presumably to consume less data. You also can not send multiple images at the same time. It also lacks location sharing. The "My Day" feature along with the Evident Game is not found on the Lite.

As can be seen, the Messenger Lite is perfect for Android devices with low configuration.

Re: What kind of video rotation?

Portrait mode video is landscape mode video with rotation field in the mp4 header set. Avidemux doesn't care about this field, but can rotate video using either the "Rotate" (in 90° steps) or "OpenGL Rotate" (any value) video filters. Video filters are available only when re-encoding video (video codec is not set to "Copy").

To modify the rotation metadata only, use
