Last year, Twitter Lite was released as an app in the Google Play Store, which minimises data usage, loads quickly on slower networks and takes up less space on your device. The data-friendly app is now available for Indian users.
Built for 2G and 3G networks with an install size of 3MB, Twitter Lite saves data and space, and loads quickly on unreliable networks. While using the app on 2G or 3G, you’ll notice that content will load quickly on Twitter Lite.
“We want to make sure that Twitter Lite is accessible to people with data, bandwidth, and device constraints. By enabling Data saver, you can control which images and videos load on your phone. You can still load all this content at any time by hitting ‘Load image’ or ‘Load video’, helping you save money and data in real time,” said Jesar Shah, Product Manager, Twitter, in a blog post.
Twitter Lite also supports push notifications, allowing you to keep up with what’s happening around the world and following Twitter’s last year announcement, threaded Tweets are now available on Twitter Lite.
Users can also use Bookmarks feature in Twitter Lite app that allows you to save important Tweets for later, for when you have more data or a better internet connection.
Apart from India, Twitter Lite Google Play app is now available in all countries including Algeria, Argentina, Bangladesh, Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Romania, Serbia, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, Yemen, and Zimbabwe.
