Facebook adds video chat to Messenger Lite, its pared-down Android app

Posted by @audreylaine, Wed, Mar 7 8:20am

After bringing its pared-down Android app Messenger Lite to mature markets like the US and UK last autumn, Facebook is expanding its features to ramp up engagement. Today, the company announced that it is adding video chat into the mix.

Messenger Lite, first launched in 2015, was initially part of an effort from Facebook to build more apps to boost usage in developing countries, where mobile usage is more costly and people are more likely to use more lower-end Android devices.
