Facebook Messenger Lite adds video chat

Facebook Messenger Lite adds video chat

This comes after the company initially made the app more widely available as an alternative to the main Messenger app that, at this point, is so bogged down with features it isn't amusing.

The social media giant has noticed that video chats are extremely popular among users of the standard Messenger client. This can be done by tapping on the video icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Messenger Lite offers core messaging capabilities like sending text, photos, links, and audio calls to people with either Messenger Lite or Messenger. In order to initialise the video call through Facebook Messenger Lite application, just launch the application on a respective Android smartphone first. The app aims to deliver the core Messenger experience without the additional bells and whistles. It said that during 2017, there were 17 billion video chats in Messenger, which is up nearly two-fold since 2016.

Three Italian clubs are playing this week, including AC Milan, where Astori began his professional career. Astori leaves behind him his partner, Francesca Fioretti, and their two year old daughter, Vittoria.

Fortunately, the Video Call functionality in the Facebook Messenger Lite application is as same as the Classic Facebook Messenger app so there will be no difference in terms of using the application.

Will the addition of video chat convince you to ditch Messenger for Messenger Lite? Once the video call starts, you can mute down the microphone, switching cameras easily or end up the conversation.

Messenger Lite is positioned as an alternative to the regular Messenger for people with older devices or slower data connections, but it's also great for people who want to chat without all the bells and whistles of the full Messenger. Based on user reports at the Android Wear Help forum, Google has disabled the support for Android Pay for Android Wear smartwatches after the Android 8.0 Oreo update for users outside the United Kingdom and the United States. So if you are running out of the poor connection, you can simply switch the original Facebook Messenger app to this Facebook Messenger Lite edition which will offer nearly all the functions and features to your smartphone.
