Messenger lite for android just got more features that allow you to better express yourself and share more with family and friends.

With this new feature facebook announced on its blog post 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.

“To 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,” Krish Gali, Product Manager, Facebook.

Users can now also customise their conversations with different people and groups and make various colour choices and emojis to make the chat more personal.

With the new updates, Facebook’s Messenger Lite app has become a feature-rich service but the size still remains under 10MB.

The lightweight messaging app available in over 100 countries got video chat capabilities earlier this year.

Messenger Lite earlier had Messenger’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 colours reversed. The bolt is blue with a white chat bubble background.
