Facebook Announce Facebook Messenger Lite for Android Devices

It is no longer news that the invention and launching of Google Allo have steered up serious concerns amongst several technologies and instant messaging companies, and with Allo, it just confirmed my thoughts about Google, they sure don't wanna be number 2 in the list.

In the meantime, we keep our fingers crossed and watch the events of the coming days as they unfold.
