Facebook will be bringing Facebook Lite, its stripped down version of the social media platform to Australia and other developed countries.
Facebook says it brought the Lite version to more developed countries as users can still have lower connectivity.
“We want to make sure everyone has the option to use this app if they want,” Facebook says.
The Lite platform includes its core experiences like News Feed, status updates, photos, notifications and more.
Introduced in 2015, its Lite version uses less data, is less than 1MB to install and is easily accessible across all networks. It was first introduced across countries in Latin America, Africa, Europe and Asia.
It is available for download now on Android with iOS to follow. It is available in other countries including the USA, UK and New Zealand.
