Facebook's data-saving Messenger Lite is available in the US

Facebook Messenger has gotten to be a bloated mess. Whether it’s suggested text replies and stickers or it pestering you to send money seemingly whenever it notices a dollar sign, sometimes all you want to do is chat with a friend via text. Nothing more, nothing less. Well, if you’ve been cursing Zuckerberg’s name when any of the above happens, know this: Messenger Lite is now available in the US along with Canada, the UK and Ireland.

Originally designed for developing markets, the app is available right now, so if you want to start saving data without losing touch with friends and family on the platform. That is unless you’re on iOS. Facebook hasn’t revealed if the app will make it to Apple hardware.
