Music is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of your network connectivity, data plan, and whether or not you have the latest phone. That’s why Spotify Lite was officially announced today.
It’s a small, fast, and simplified version that gives you an unparalleled music experience. It works much like the main Spotify app. Users are still be able to search and play their favourite songs and artists. You can still save them, share them with others, discover new music and enjoy playlists made just for you. However, there are a few extra features making it ideal for older devices and operating systems.
“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.”
