Soon after entering India, Swedish music streaming platform Spotify has now introduced a lighter version of its app which is designed to work on older or low-end Android smartphones.
The app was first tested in Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Mexico, and Brazilian markets. Spotify Lite has a size of 10 MB and has similar look and feel as the main app. The app is available in beta version for the Indian users. Working on less storage, users of cheap Android phones can now also stream their favourite music on Spotify.
Spotify Lite is not directly available in the Play Store and had to be downloaded separately. The app lets you stream your favourite songs and artists on demand and discover new music. The app also keeps track of storage, data and works on all low-end Android phones in all limited connectivity conditions too.
The primary Spotify app that came to India this February gained over million followers within just week of its launch. The app offers almost all the features that the parent app has. There is similar looking home page that shows popular playlists and curated playlists based on different moods.
One feature that is absent is the option to download songs for offline playback. The Spotify Connect feature is also not present that allows users connect to other devices and play music via Wi-Fi.
