Today, Spotify has launched its lighter version of its android. It is called Spotify Lite which is mainly designed for people with smaller data plans and older services. The app is only 10MB in size which means it’s hardly going to occupy any space on your device. The main Spotify app is of 100MB which was a problem for people with less storage space on their phones. The lite version comes with a major feature and that its ability to set a data limit and receive a notification when it has reached the limit. This an important feature for people bothered about their data usage.

While using Spotify Lite, you can also control your song cache and clear it with just a tap, if you have storage issues on your device. Currently, the app is available in 36 markets in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America through Play. The app is compatible with any android device with version 4.3 and higher. The lite version of the app is going to provide you with the same experience. But the app is mainly optimized for slower connections and people with lower connections and less data-intensive cell plans.

Other than the data feature addition, the lite version has also got a design change. This is yet another major difference between the two apps. User’s libraries on Lite are replaced with favorites where you can save all your favorite songs and playlists. Spotify states that:

 “the app and the people should select whichever suits them best.”

Spotify is one of the many major tech companies that have launched its lite version for the convenience of the users. Other tech giants such as Facebook, Instagram, and Uber also have their lite apps available for their users. The main advantage of using the lite version is that it consumes very less space and data on your device. These lite apps are actually becoming more popular these days. Tech companies have also found a new way of expanding their business to developing countries with the help of a lite version of their apps.
