    To use video chats on Messenger Lite, users need to open an existing conversation or find the person they would like to chat with in their contact list, then tap the video icon on the upper right corner of the screen. And you can also upgrade an audio call to a video chat while still in the call by tapping the video icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, Facebook said.

    Facebook’s Messenger Lite app for Android is getting video chat, adding the final feature the slimmed-down app needed to become a truly viable replacement for the full-featured Messenger. This update makes Messenger Lite the perfect Facebook Messenger app.

    “Now people who use Messenger Lite can have the same rich and expressive face-to-face conversations as those who use the core Messenger app, no matter which technology they use or have access to,” Facebook said in a statement late on Wednesday.
