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

Spotify Lite App for Android Comes Out of Beta Brings Data Limit Feature

Citing a company spokesperson, TechCrunch reported that there are no plans to bring the Lite app to iOS.

Spotify has just launched a Lite version of its Android app that's created to work well on low-end devices and spotty connections. However, the app also seems to be available to United States and European Android users. It has a meager 10MB download size and takes about 32MB of your phone's storage (this could differ from device to device) as compared to the massive 100MB standard app, which is just great. You still have a bottom navigation bar, all of your favorites alongwith playlist recommendations accessible here as well. "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.


The focus is on offering Spotify Lite in markets where older phones and data limits are commonplace. The Lite version also allows users to keep a track on the data and storage consumption. This includes one of your most important features - offline playback. They'll be able to use it with either a free or a Premium account, and they can use it alongside the main app for times when their mobile internet is spotty.

Spotify Lite is now available on the Google Play Store and can be used alongside your full-fat app.
