Facebook has just officially published "Facebook Lite" v188.8.131.52 App on the Google Play store. The main reason for this App is to make a lite, fast Facebook App for Low-end Android smartphones, as the current Facebook App is very large in size and performs slow on low-spec devices with less Ram and CPU power and uses less data and works in all network conditions
Facebook Lite is relatively tiny for an app from a major social network, weighing in at only a quarter of a megabyte a crucial stat if you live in a place that can only get 2G data access. There's a good reason for that, too: it looks like Facebook Lite isn't much more than a WebView wrapper for the mobile site, plus native Android notifications.
That might indeed be very useful for someone who just wants to check in on Facebook without loading up the admittedly heavy Chrome app, but for most current users it won't add any real functionality. Facebook Lite does include a few extra bells and whistles that aren't available on the web, like the ability to peek into your phone's contacts to see if there's anyone you've ever spoken to that isn't your Facebook friend yet.
Facebook Lite main features:
- Fast to install, the app is less than 1 MB
- Quick to load
- Efficient with data
- Designed for 2G networks and areas with limited network connectivity
The latest WhatsApp version 2.12.330 for Android packs various bug fixes and some New features along with the usual Bug fixes.
One of the new features is the ability to mute contacts individually, whereas previously you could only mute groups. You can now take control of the mobile data used during whatsapp calls and chat sessions in the new version's settings.
The new updates also bring the ability to mark conversations as unread, although this will only take effect in your app, and the message will still show up as read to the other participants in a conversation.
The new features also include a few new setting options. One particularly interesting addition is a new low data mode for voice calls, one that, as the name suggests, will put voice calls on a data diet, a feature that will be surely welcomed in emerging markets where mobile data is still expensive.
WhatsApp 2.12.330 Change-log:
• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• Mark chats as unread or read
• Added new emoji. You can also tap and hold on some emoji to choose a different color.
• When receiving a contact card, you can now quickly message or save the contact if they're on WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls
• Language support for Urdu and Bengali
