Yesterday, Facebook announced a new app for its billions of users, known as ‘Facebook Lite’.

The new version app of Facebook for Android uses less data and works well across all network conditions.

According to Facebook, the app was made to cater for billions of users across the globe, especially for those with ‘challenging’ data connection, in which they are using networks that are slow and not able to support all the functionality found in Facebook for Android.

Facebook Lite was built for these situations, giving people a reliable Facebook experience when bandwidth is at a minimum.

Installation of the app is fast as its less than 1MB in size, and it focuses on the core experiences of Facebook which is the News Feed, status updates, photos, notifications and a few more.

Facebook Lite in available in countries across Asia, and should be available in parts of Latin America, Africa and Europe by next week.
