The new Spotify Lite app will make the world-class streaming service available when your connection is limited.
Spotify and other services have put entire world’s of music into our pockets, breaking the limits of physical music in availability. But without a strong internet connection that access is gone. Spotify’s new app will keep you connected when data is limited and your phone is old.
Spotify Lite is a smaller, faster version of the Spotify app. Listeners can use it to search Spotify’s giant library of digital music but in a simpler app. With less excess in the design the app runs smoother and takes less data to load up all of the content displayed on the normal Spotify app.
This means that when your connection is limited, or you don’t want to use all of your data streaming music, you can still use Spotify. You can set a data limit too, so you never run over on your connection.
The simpler design is also made to run better on older devices with less power for a smooth experience regardless of what you’re playing on. The Lite app will only take up 10MB of storage on your phone so it’s easy to download and barely leaves a mark.
Spotify’s senior product manager, Kalle Persson said: “Spotify Lite was built from the ground up based on user feedback form around the world, allowing millions more to enjoy the world’s best music experience – especially in areas with limited bandwidth and phone storage.”
You can download both the main Spotify app and Spotify Lite alongside each other to use based on the experience you want at the time.
Spotify Lite is available in 36 markets now on Android devices from the Google Play store.
