Spotify is launching Spotify Lite, for older devices
A Spotify app perfect for feature phones is the company's move to get people on the app across a wide range of devices
Spotify wants their music 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 is introducing Spotify Lite. A small, fast, and simplified version of the company's music experience that works much like the main Spotify app. You’ll still be able to search and play your favorite songs and artists, save them, share with others, discover new music, and enjoy playlists made for you with their swell algorithm, but with 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. With Spotify Lite, you can control your data and storage. It’s only 10 MB, so it’s quick to install and load while offering the same great listening experience that lets you discover, play, and enjoy the songs you want.
Spotify Lite also comes with the ability to set a data limit and get a notification when you reach it. Spotify Lite also allows you to control your cache, and clear it with a single tap.
Spotify Lite is now available in 36 markets across Asia, Latin America, Middle East and Africa on Google Play with more markets
