Spotify Lite launched in South Africa

Spotify now has a Lite app for Android users in 36 countries

Spotify launched a Lite version of its music streaming app so you don't have to worry about hitting data limits as you stream. Spotify Lite is a simplified app which functions the same way as the standard version, allowing users to search for and listen to preferred artists, save songs, use playlists, etc. Spotify Lite can be used for both paid and free subscriptions.

Though Internet connectivity in India has improved over the past couple of years, many popular app makers are making Lite apps to attract more users to its service. For instance, Spotify Lite replaces Your Library with Favorites. The app is now available in 36 markets in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, including South Africa, in the Google Play store. "It's only 10 MB, so it's quick to install and load", the company said.

Spotify has unveiled a new version of its app called Spotify Lite which is primarily designed for older or lower end devices that has less firepower as compared to newer models. "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", says Kalle Persson, Senior Product Manager at Spotify, said in a statement.

Weighing in at a scant 10MB the app also comes with an optional data limit, notifying the user when it is in danger of being breached.
