The Facebook Messenger Lite application for Android is receiving video chat, adding the final feature of the reduced application that is needed to become a truly viable replacement for the full Messenger.
It is an addition that more or less makes Messenger Lite the perfect Facebook Messenger application. By cutting all the integrations and accumulated features that Facebook has added over the years, Messenger Lite offers simple and easy messages. In theory, Messenger Lite is designed for "people with older Android devices and / or slower Internet connections", but it is increasingly seen as the best option for any Android user.
Now all we need to do on Facebook is stop there and not add new features, otherwise, we might need a Messenger Lighter application in a few years to reset everything again.
(Oh, and an iOS version would be nice.)
