Facebook Messenger Lite for Android gets GIFs, customization and more via new update

06 December 2018 3

Messenger Lite, Facebook’s stripped down version of its popular messaging app has received an update that brings new features for customization. The new update is meant for Android and it brings up the ability to send Gifs, support for Emoji, file sharing, and more.

Before this update, the Messenger Lite was able to receive the GIFs but they weren’t animated in-app. From now on, users can be more expressive as they can send and play animated GIFs. To send a GIF, use a third party keyboard (such as the Google keyboard), search for GIFs in their library, and send a more expressive message. Also, you can make your conversations more fun as the app now allows you to change the colors, nicknames, and emojis as many times as you want. When you make a change, the people you’re chatting with will see what updates you selected.

These are some changes coming to the Messenger Lite which were present on the full-sized Messenger app.

You can also share a file, picture, a video, or an audio file with friends and family. To share a file, tap the “+” sign, select file or video from the popup, and hit send.

All these new features come inside the 10MB sized update which is quite light. Such a feature-rich update isn’t putting any weight on the app which is the best part of being on the Facebook Messenger Lite.

At last, Facebook tells, it’s making investments to address bugs or violating content so that the users could enjoy the experience.

What's the level of updates Lite version apps are supposed to get? No doubt, they too need updates. But continuous updates will ultimately make them heavier in the future.
