Today we will begin to roll out Messages Lite, a new, simpler version of Messages that will be part of the Upwork for Freelancers app. Currently, messaging in the Upwork for Freelancers app take time to load and can lag. Messages Lite has much faster app performance, but with limited features. Freelancers will be able to perform basic functions on Messages Lite, including reviewing their contact list, sending and receiving messages, and sending and receiving files.
When this is available, users will see a pop-up in the Upwork App to try Messages Lite.
We understand that speed and accessibility are important to our users and we are working on expanding Messages Lite to incorporate a fuller set of features without compromising its speed. We will inform you of future updates, and hope you enjoy the new Messages Lite. Let us know if you have any questions or feedback!
Thank you for launching new feature for better speed!

Thanks for the kudos, Horacio! I'm glad you like Messages Lite!
I merged your post with the original announcement about the feature so we can keep the conversation in the same place.
I can confirm there's no longer an option to switch back to the full version of Messages. Could you please share the reasons for not continuing to use Messages Lite? I'd love to get more feedback and forward it to our team.
