Facebook Messenger Lite Now Has Animated GIFs, Customization Settings
Facebookâ€™s Messenger Lite is getting richer day by day with more features such as animated GIFs and most customization features that we can find on the full-sized Messenger app.
â€œWhile you could receive GIFs in Messenger Lite for some time, they were not animated. Starting now, people can express themselves more in chats with family and friends by sending and playing animated GIFs.
â€œTo send a GIF, use a third party keyboard (such as the Google keyboard), search for GIFs in their library, and send a more expressive message,â€
Krish Gali, Product Manager, Facebook, wrote in a blog post late Wednesday.
You can now also customize your conversations with different users and groups and make various colour choices and emojis to make the chat more personal.
With the latest updates, Facebookâ€™s Messenger Lite app has become a feature-rich service but the size still remains under 10MB. The lightweight messaging app is available in over 100 countries got video chat capabilities earlier this year.
Messenger Lite earlier had Messengerâ€™s core experiences such as messaging, sending and receiving photos and links and receiving stickers. It uses the same bolt logo as Messenger but with colors reversed. The bolt is blue with a white chat bubble background.
