Facebook Lite app was launched for Android devices three years ago in select markets. The app was launched for the United States market in March this year, and now the company is planning to release an iOS version of the app.
Facebook, Google, as well as other technology companies have built a lightweight version of their main applications which work in emerging countries where there are slower networks. Since Android dominates in these markets, till now all of the Lite apps have been exclusive to Google software.
Now Facebook is testing a Lite app for Apple’s iPhones which is just 5MB in size and has been optimized for budget hones. The app has been released in Turkey and is expected to be rolled out in limited regions soon.
