Spotify Launches a 'Small, Fast, and Simplified' Lite App

Spotify Lite's UI is almost identical to that of the main app

Furthermore, whenever that limit is reached, the app sends a notification to the user to make sure that the data plan isn't maxed out.

"We are committed to the long-term development of the music streaming industry, and the launch of Spotify Lite is another strong step in that direction", Batra added.

Spotify had been beta testing a lightweight version of its standard Android app, dubbed Spotify Lite, for quite some time and is now officially launching in 36 countries today.

Why it matters: Lite versions of apps have always been popularized by companies like YouTube and Facebook.

"Spotify Lite was built from the ground up based on user feedback from around the world, allowing millions more to enjoy the world's best music experience - especially in areas with limited bandwidth and phone storage", informed Kalle Persson, Senior Product Manager at Spotify. Spotify Lite is a smaller and simplified version of the full-fledged Spotify app, which lets you use the same features while requiring fewer resources, be it hardware or software.

Spotify Lite, which is available on Google Play, has a file size of just 10MB, compared to the original app which is 28MB. As mentioned, the lite version of the app will also help users save data. These focus on emerging markets where a combination of limited data speeds, patchy connectivity and wide use of low-end devices are prevalent.

Spotify Lite can be run on all Android phones running version 4.3 or higher, it said. As of March 2019, the music platform reported 217 million users with 46 percent of them being paid subscribers (100 million).
