Spotify Launches ‘Lite’ App

Spotify has revealed a ‘Lite’ version of its app, aimed at older phones or for anyone with a small monthly data allowance. The app, which is compatible with devices running Android 4.3 or higher, weighs in at 10MB.

The Lite version of the app continues to offer access to millions of songs and can be used alongside the main Spotify app, with support for both free and Spotify Premium users.

For users with small data capacities, when the limit is reached, the app pops up a notification to ensure a user does not exceed the data limit and incur charges.

“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. Lite can be downloaded separately, both for Free and Spotify Premium users, and used either alongside or independently from the main Spotify app on all Android phones running version 4.3 or higher.

Android users in 36 markets across the Americas, Asia, Middle East and Africa are free to download the app from the Google Play Store.
