Facebook has introduced video chat as a new feature in Messenger Lite, which is a slimmed down version for Android and is intended for people with older Android devices and/or slower internet connections.
As we have seen video chats are becoming a key way to stay connected
What is Messenger Lite?
Messenger Lite is a "lite" version of the Messenger App and was developed for users in emerging markets where mobile internet connections are slow. It has the same core functions as the standard Messenger but its size is under 10mb. This makes it fast and easy to download.
How does it work:
- Go to Messenger Lite
- Open an existing conversation or find someone you want to chat with
- Tap on the video icon on the upper right corner of the screen
- You can also upgrade an audio call to a video chat while still in the call by tapping the video icon in the botton right corner of the screen.
