Spotify Lite Beta Launched in India For Low End Devices

Spotify, the Swedish music streaming app that witnessed thunderous success after launching in India, has now introduced a lite version of the app to suit Android devices for low-end smartphones. The app’s functions and looks are akin to the main app, which weighs only 10MB.

The idea of a lite version was first tested in Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Mexico, and Brazil. Spotify Lite uses minimum storage which makes it a valid app for phones with dated processors.

Amarjit Batra, Managing Director India, Spotify, told IANS, “When Spotify launched in India two months ago, we had committed to localizing the app so that more and more people can listen to music. Spotify Lite Beta is a step in that direction as it enables users to play millions of songs for free, takes up less space on phones, and saves data when used on the go.”

Spotify Lite can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, which works individually or alongside the main app.

You can play your favorite songs, discover hundreds of playlists and keep track of the storage in the lite version of Spotify, which works in any network condition.

“Our ambition is to be available on all platforms that make sense to our users, and make the music streaming experience as seamless as possible,” Batra added.

Launched in India in February 2019, it amassed 1 million downloads within 1 week of the launch and now has over 2 million users. Soon, YouTube music also entered the realm and the battle of streaming music is more aggressive than ever.

Spotify offers more than 40 million songs which consist of 3 billion playlists in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Listeners can also enjoy podcasts and talk shows.
