Facebook testing Facebook Lite for iOS in Malaysia

Facebook Lite iOS

After launching the Android version 2015, Facebook has started testing Facebook Lite for iOS in a few countries, including Malaysia. The stripped down version of the app ensures users can enjoy a great Facebook experience even if they don’t have flagship smartphones or fast network connectivity.

Facebook Lite, currently available in over 100 countries, was first launched in 2015 for Android, targeting developing markets. It is designed to work lower-end phones and in area with slower or limited internet connectivity.

The standalone app offers a rich feature set including News Feed, status updates, push notifications, and camera/photo integration, push notifications, while remaining lightweight.

It uses less data, saves space on your phone and also works well across all network conditions, even 2G.

I tested out Facebook Lite on the Nokia 1 recently and found it highly usable.

The long wait is over, for iOS users. Facebook Lite is now available for download. The download is 13.5MB in size and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 9.0 and later.
