Messenger Lite vs Snapchat
Well, after the launch of new version of messenger lite app is a quite bad news for Snapchat, due to a number of reasons. Snapchat is an intensive app now almost wholly focused on videos and augmented photography that relies on cloud processing to add masks, filters, and other real-time effects. The end result of all this computational load is that Snapchat isn’t really a viable piece of software for mid-tier and budget Android phones outside the US, where smartphone owners routinely grapple with hardware constraints and poor network coverage.
Considering the fact that Messanger Lite just surpassed 200 million users back in February that’s 40 million more than Snapchat’s most recent monthly milestone, these lightweight apps could become a bigger threat to Snapchat down the line. Currently messenger lite is available for android and iOS platform while for the platform they have to wait for a new release.
