The differences between Facebook Messenger and Messenger Lite

1. Capacity

A major feature of Messenger Lite is low capacity. After installing and logging in, while Facebook Messenger takes up to 111MB of internal memory, Messenger Lite is only 6MB. This is a huge advantage for low-cost smartphones, which often have low internal memory capacity.

2. App size

Facebook Messenger consumes 100MB of RAM or more with maximum usage of 300MB. On the other hands, the average RAM usage of Messenger Lite is about 29MB and the maximum RAM usage is only about 70MB.

3. Interface

Messenger Lite has a simple interface which is divided into three main categories: Messages, Contacts and Personal Information / Settings. Unfortunately, this application does not allow us to view the list of online friends as on the full version. Previously,  Messenger Lite did not have a separate tab for making a video call but this function was updated in March 2018.

4. Features

When starting a conversation, users can see the reduction of the features in the Lite version. Users will neither be able to view the latest uptime nor send a sticker, GIF image, or audio message.  You also cannot send multiple images at once or share your location with others. Of course, the "My Stories" and Games feature are not found on Lite.

Furthermore, third-party applications for Messenger are not supported. All the users can do is to send a message,  picture, view a profile and block others. Likewise, in a group chat, we can only chat and leave this group.

A favorite feature on Facebook Messenger for Android is the chat heads (round squares on the screen which help users quickly access the conversation). However, this feature is unavailable in Messenger Lite. Furthermore, we can add a lot of shortcomings of Messenger Lite compared to the full version such as phone number authentication, SMS integration, secret chat, multi-user support ... Users can only turn on / off notifications, vibration mode, and ringing. Unfortunately, we cannot turn off notifications for each individual conversation.

However, don't forget that this is a Lite version and if there are too many things, Messenger Lite will definitely no longer be "lite". The reduction of features makes Messenger Lite runs a lot faster.

5. Data and Wi-Fi

Because of not having the extra bulky features, Messenger Lite can save your mobile data and battery also. Besides, it has been designed to run on 2G network, so it can work in a slow or unstable internet connection.

In Google Play, Messenger Lite receives a lot of positive feedback from users. Let’s see what people think about this app:

“This Lite app works just as great as the original Facebook messenger app. It does not take a lot of MB as the original, bigger app does. It has just about everything the main app has & I've never experienced any problems within this app. I have used this app for a long time now and I haven't experienced any issues. I'm picky when it comes to installing apps because the more space the merrier!”- Erin Weldon


“Great messing app! Super simple to use for those of us who don't want or need all the extra distracting gibberish that most of the other similar apps have. Thanks so much to the developers who saw the need for a more basic texting app..”- Robyn Baker


“Great app compared to the original messenger. Takes up way less space which is great. Still has all functions you would get with the original messenger. I also love that you just get a notification when someone messages you instead of those annoying chat heads. I would definitely recommend the lite version of Messenger.”- Ashley Marie

To sum up, Messenger Lite is a light and interesting app chat that you should try downloading and using. Hope that with these instructions to download Messenger Lite APK, you can have the best experience with this application. Thanks for reading!
