Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services that boasts a massive collection of more than 35 million songs. Well, Spotify has just launched it’s new application Spotify Lite for countries with low internet speeds. This application is designed to work flawlessly on low-end and older Android phones.
So here’s everything you need to know about the Spotify Lite application.
Spotify Lite: Application Review
Lately, Spotify has been expanding it’s service to many new countries and regions. That said, not all countries have access to a high-speed internet connection and a majority of people rely on a limited amount of mobile data for Internet connectivity. Moreover, most people in developing countries don’t spare enough money on buying a high-end smartphone and they prefer holding up to an older device.
The Spotify Lite application is launched to overcome all of the above-mentioned issues. This application weighs just 10MB in size and it’s UI is mostly similar to that of the Spotify application. The toned-down version of Spotify also allows users to clear all of the cached data which in turn helps in increasing the storage of your device.
One of the most interesting features of Spotify Lite application is monthly data limits. You can set data limits ranging from 250MB to 3GB. The application will notify the users once they cross this data limit. Spotify Lite can be installed on any Android smartphone running on Android version 4.3 and higher.
As for downsides, this application doesn’t allow users to download their favourite tracks for offline listening. This feature might be added in the upcoming versions of this application.
Spotify has released a list of 36 countries in which the toned-down version of the standard application can be installed from the Google Play Store. These countries are:
Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, South Africa, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, India.
