How to Install Facebook Lite in Windows & Mac

You might be aware of the fact that Facebook Lite is mobile app and in order to install it in Windows or Mac, you need to download an Android emulator like Bluestacks. Once Bluestacks is installed, follow the steps below:

  1. Launch Bluestacks on your computer.
  2. Open PlayStore inside Bluestacks.
  3. Search for “Facebook Lite”.
  4. Download and install it.

When its installation is completed, you will be able to see its icon on your Bluestacks homescreen as well as your Windows desktop.

What is Facebook Lite?

Besides taking up about 50 MB of storage space (which can more than double in size when installed and the data starts being cached), it also consumes massive amounts of data. Introduced in 2015, Facebook Lite is a version of Facebook which was built from scratch with two target customers in mind: users with limited space on their phones, and users in developing countries.

Facebook Lite App

With exceedingly large apps becoming the norm nowadays, Facebook Lite comes as a welcome breath of fresh air. Rated at just over 1 MB, this app does almost everything the regular Facebook does, albeit a little slower.

However, slower in this case also means more data-efficient. For instance, the app does not immediately download every high resolution photo in your timeline; instead, it displays smaller versions of the photos until clicked.

Of course the app also facilitates all the usual Facebook activity: from keeping up with friends and sharing memes to buying and selling goods on Facebook Marketplace, Facebook Lite has you covered. Moreover, it also has its own Instant Messaging service, thereby negating the need to download the Messenger app!


Ranked as the #1 Top Free App on Google Play Store, this app is definitely a must-have for everyone – and especially for the storage and data conscious users. By installing it on your Windows computer or Mac, you can enjoy the same features of FaceBook Lite.
