When you hear about streaming music you always want to prepare your Spotify cards so you can pay for this amazing service. And the great thing now is that Spotify developers thought about people without a lot of space on their device. Spotify is launching Spotify Lite, a tool designed to occupy only 10 MB of space on your mobile device. This comes at the same time as testing is being done for Spotify’s new car assistant.
Why is this important?
While you can still use Spotify cards with this, the thing that has changed is the fact that you can set a data limit and also receive a notification when that limit is reached. Whether we like it or not, it’s important to remember that not everyone has the best Internet. And that means a lot of people are limited in this regard. What you can do at this time is to find a tool to consume less data, and Spotify Lite helps with that.
Not only is this a smaller download (10% of the regular size), you also have bandwidth-saving features that can really make a difference as well. Another thing to note is that you can control the song cache and clear it with just a quick tap, in case you have storage issues.
Where can you get Spotify Lite?
At this time you’ll only be able to download the Spotify Lite app in Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. 36 countries in total have availability to the app, but more will have it in the near future. In order to use the Lite version you need Android 4.3 or higher.
According to Spotify, this tool is designed to complement the regular app. So you can check out the Lite and Regular version, then choose which one works best for your needs. Instagram, Facebook and Uber all have Lite versions, so it made sense to have a Lite option for Spotify. And it seems to work great, hopefully it will arrive on more markets real soon!
