I haven't updated messenger in years so I don't have to worry about any of those bloated features
WardahTheBlaqQ (8 hours ago)
Metal for Facebook. Small install size, themable, fast, lightweight, AND it includes a full Facebook AND chat client, plus a Twitter client as well!

Why am i watching this. I don't even have Facebook

I would use Messenger if they didn't remove one of the most useful featured which is chat bubbles.
Alex Wilson (18 hours ago)
The only thing Lite needs in my opinion is chat heads, but aside from that, it's great!
Well, I'd love to use the messenger lite app since I never use most of the things included in the full messenger app. However, I use video chat more often than not so I simply cannot ditch the full version of the app in favor of lite... It would be incredible if users get to choose which features they want so that they can pick out whichever features they want on their device.

Facebook and messenger suck battery like a Tiger I used to suck gasoline
areeb1296 (4 days ago)
NEVER install a official facebook app. They're just trash and keep ruining in the background, eating up lots of memory and battery. Use facebook on a browser or use a lite party app.

Facebook messenger is shit

This is great news. I use messenger daily for friends and the only reason I haven't switched to the lite version is video chat.

Facebook has become crap
Cezy Video (5 days ago)
What i hate the most is that it tries to replace the main SMS app.....Is not a good SMS app.I dont see my SMS list...or names...too many times to type to find someone.And is annoying cause sometimes it replaces it automatically.

We desperately need messenger lite for iOS

Don't forget the ads in messenger now.

Just use old version of Messenger and you should be fine.
Damien Nicholas Swart (8 days ago)
I use the Facebook messenger. The normal app as yes it had more features but for me who is connected to Wi-Fi its all good my side.
Dilly Defect (9 days ago)

Mark Gangte (14 days ago)
Yeah.. Messenger is one of my fav messaging app because it's looks kinda similar to iMessage bubble which have these multiple colored theme! 👍🏻
Nirav Makadia (14 days ago)
only thing i dont like in messenger lite is that you cant send GIF!
R H (15 days ago)
Totally unecessary. No one uses this fucking app.

Messenger lite is good but there are many features missing in it
LNO PGDN III (17 days ago)
Im still using fb messenger because all of my friends using it. I want to use other messaging app like whatsapp or viber, but i dont have any friends who use them.... So I'M stuck in fbm!😭
HelloItsZiggy (17 days ago)
I just heard of telegram 4 days ago and I've downloaded it and trust me it is way better than messenger, whatsapp, viber, etc.

Wow, the Droid X. How I miss that beast.
Marko MSX (18 days ago)
I use a very old version of messenger. Because Messenger is a sack of shit with useless features and takes up like 25% of my storage (Yes, I have an old phone) and even when I buy a new one, I'll use it on the new phone as well. Plus, new messenger emojis are retarded and moronic.
Jason Cook (18 days ago)
I use Frost for Facebook a new mobile wrapper app for Facebook Mobile site. It's open-source and coming along nicely.
Michael Street (18 days ago)
Just get Facebook lite...it still has built in messenger!
Andrei Predescu (18 days ago)
I don't care about data plan. I have unlimited Internet, but it just consumes so much RAM. That's what I hate about it. And messenger lite sucks too. I would rather have a PWA - Those things are awesome (when they work), like Twitter lite.
J Ramsay (18 days ago)
"right below that like button" and " and I'll catch you guys in the next one...peace" - a criticism I have for this video is the fact that you need to create your own video identity rather than copying MKBHD's 😂 other than that good video

Facebook becomes 1gb in size after using for 1 month lol and massenger becomes 600mb in size
Alex K. (19 days ago)
i use the Swipe app, its a small and lightweight app and i have an included messenger because i dont get why im forced to use a dedicated app if i use messenger about once a month
Tejas Tharu (19 days ago)
Uninstalled Facebook and Messengers years back! I'm using Facebook in chrome, which includes Messenger in it. It's light weight, combined solution even for the high end phones.
gadgets lover (19 days ago)
FACEBOOK is trash
Fahim Sarower (19 days ago)
Lite. Because it's lite.
Farzan Khoobchehr (19 days ago)
Don't you think Messenger really needs a dark mode?!
Farzan Khoobchehr (15 days ago)
Location Searching please teach me how!
Location Searching (18 days ago)
Farzan Khoobchehr If you are android that is a option just not officially if you are on iOS and are on 11.2 I believe then you can jailbreak and I'm sure there is a dark mode app. Again if you have android I can give a good recommendation that can put dark mode on many apps without any serious modifications that would void your warranty.
Nithin Suresh (19 days ago)
I don't use any. I have actually installed Facebook lite app. Use it for messaging as the size of the app is lesser than Facebook messenger app itself.
awais ahmed (19 days ago)
Watsapp is still my all time favourite instant messaging app.
Piyush kumar ANIME (19 days ago)
Facebook messenger has complex interface
gyenming (19 days ago)
I use fbc endlessly, but use messenger lite as the main messenger app was an enormous battery drain that would occasionally lag on my oneplus 3t.
D (19 days ago)
I like the chat head thing. This is very useful and it does not distract from what I am doing while fully chatting with my friends. In What's up and other messengers you have to switch applications or answer from notification shade, but that is not the same.
CartelZ (11 days ago)
D yeah that's good
Bhavin Rathore (19 days ago)
I don't use messenger anymore, WhatsApp is enough for me to communicate with my friends and family.

But that's the thing: Messenger knows too much while Messenger Lite does not know enough

So why did you make this vid
Denis Kudlik (20 days ago)
Finally uninstalled this cancerous app thanks to this video. Well done guys!
Thunder Badger (20 days ago)
What's the best alternative to fb messenger? It has to have a great video call service.
R.S Laurent (20 days ago)
Here's a better idea, just go to the desktop site of facebook within your mobile BROWSER, everything is available right there.
Thunder Badger (20 days ago)
I use the normal messenger app. I hate it, use it but I don't wanna use it. I dislike Facebook (the company) very much. But I have to keep using it for the time being because I have a girlfriend overseas who uses this one. Because we have a video call everyday, so I'm always using it. But I hate it. Is there another 2018 great messenging app? One that does well with Video Calls/normal via net calls and voice messages? My gf and I have tried Line, Kik, Skype (but like 2 years back), Tango, but throughout the calls on these apps, there was too many problems so my gf kept wanting to return to Fb Messenger. What's skype like today? The app any good or still can't keep up with Messenger? Is there another alternative to Facebook Messenger? Please let me know. Thanks.
Carl (19 days ago)
Thunder Badger I use LINE with my girlfriend overseas every day. Great messaging app, and the voice/video calling is great.

I just switched to facebook messenger lite just now after watching this. Thumbs up!
Donnavon Hallgren (20 days ago)
Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp are two of the most hideous messengers on the planet yet 90% of the planet uses one or both of them.. *Shakes head*
Sandeep Kumar (20 days ago)
I have no Facebook messenger or Facebook app installed on any of my device. As a matter of fact I try to use less of Facebook unless I really want to update something say a status or a picture. Facebook may be the biggest social media around but day by day it is becoming the worst. Twitter, Instagram and snapchat and YouTube is the best.
J A (20 days ago)
Sandeep Kumar Apparently calling feature is coming to Instagram.
Sandeep Kumar (20 days ago)
Pr.incorporated Facebook bought Instagram but the team is different. But let’s just hope they don’t ruin it like Facebook ruined itself at least for me.
Sandeep Kumar (20 days ago)
Pr.incorporated I know right. But Instagram is in a way better than Facebook. Facebook is a mess. Like say if asked to choose three services for the rest of my life I would choose Google, amazon and twitter.
Pr.incorporated (20 days ago)
Sandeep Kumar Does FB buy Instagram? There's no getting away from it 😭
David H Bingham (20 days ago)
Don't like Facebook messenger, the generic Samsung messenger a whole lot more friendly when dealing with those who are not on Facebook.

Fb lite for everything
jordan rausch (20 days ago)
So how come Facebook messenger for android can have chat heads? And iOS can’t?
Eternal War (20 days ago)
I use Facebook messenger lite because I only have limited storage but mainly because the official app starts up all the time and drains so much battery but the lite version is way better at saving battery.
Abhi Dahiya (20 days ago)
Seriously ? Messenger isn't that bad ? Facebook and Messenger apps are the worst apps EVER ! Dude, who even let you shoot this video ?
Luka TO (3 days ago)
Abhi Dahiya can you explain why it's trash?? Stfu
JUDVS (20 days ago)
My phone is a Oneplus 3T and i use both apps lol The only bad thing is the number of useless functions
Abhi Dahiya (20 days ago)
JUDVS I had a Galaxy S4, S6 and now own a OnePlus 3T. None of these have been bad by any means whatsoever. And yet Facebook and Messenger apps still suck. Why ? Infact tried them on Lenovo P2 and Redmi Note 3 and they are still trash. I guess there exists no good phone to actually run these apps.
JUDVS (20 days ago)
Facebook and Messenger are the worst apps if you have a bad phone
SideriNorge (20 days ago)
They can remove everything. Just keep the bobble and sms and im happy
R. Batinic (20 days ago)
Facebook is going to end up as Myspace... people are already jumping ship to other social media.
J A (19 days ago)
Hard to imagine anything toppling FB anytime soon, but for what it's worth, Vero has grabbed some attention.
Martin Warford (20 days ago)
R. Batinic Maybe...but eventually most things have their time and then people move on. So no big prediction here.
David (20 days ago)
Other social media such as what? Instagram? Lmao. Owned by Facebook. Besides, this is bait messenger not Facebook.
Dariel montez (20 days ago)
R. Batinic no they're not
TyGamer125 (20 days ago)
I use lite and use chrome with push notifications going through it to get facebook notifications. The biggest annoyance is that Facebook lite doesn't have the correct tie ins to launch facebook messenger links allowing you to click message on someone's profile in the web browser and send a message to them in lite. This is because it doesn't have the link handlers set up. Wish they would fix that.
Богдан Чуб (20 days ago)
Messenger Lite is OK, but Facebook Lite... Just switched to Metal (best web-wrapper for mobile site)

Isn't Signal better? Wasn't Telegram compromised last year?
Scott Mackenzie (20 days ago)
i use friendly app instead, facebook and messenger in 1 app, also has amoled background theme with customisable accents and no ads, thias also uses less storage, ram, and data and allows you to download videos.
