Spotify has indeed successfully launched its Lite version of Android App and has thus impressed upon the technology market with this valuable innovation.
Spotify has recently launched a Lite version of its Android app that is really designed to work well on low-end devices and spotty connections. This does bring into focus the Lite Version of Spotify.
The app does come in at under 10MB and is set to stream tunes at ‘Basic’ quality by default, which the company needs to work out to roughly 0.5MB per song on average. One can set this to Spotify’s highest quality streams if one likes it too. In fact, one can acknowledge the significance of the Lite Version of Spotify.
The interface is rather pretty much the same as the standard Android app but does include features to track the mobile data usage for streaming music, and also to set a limit on how much data one will let the app use before it notifies oneself. Lite Version of Spotify cannot be side-tracked.
There is indeed another notable difference: the slightly simplified interface does, in fact, display saved songs and playlists in a section referred to as Favorites, which avoids ‘Your Library.’
In case, the phone has already run the standard Spotify app just fine, there is really no need to switch. One has the option to save on data usage. But if one is low on storage space, this is worth trying out. The company highlights on its support page that it does indeed hope to make an iPhone version soon too.
It does give one greater control over the mobile data usage.
Spotify Lite is currently available in 36 countries: Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, South Africa, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, India. This does bring forth the value of Lite Version of Spotify.
Spotify, most popular music streaming service in the world, is not neglecting users who may still be enjoying the older version of Android phones which may run may be on the operating system and would surely be running low on storage space. This is what makes Lite Version of Spotify so special. The company has announced that the Spotify Lite app is now officially available in India, after a period of beta testing. The app is free to download from the Google Play Store on Android phones.
The highlight of the Spotify Lite app happens to be rather a small installation size—around 10MB. This implies that it does not take up too much space on phones that may already be running low on storage real estate for apps as well as data. Secondly, one will find that while the Lite app does retain the same interface as the full-fledged Spotify app. The music library, search options, and the recommendations are replicated as is. At the same time, a lot of the extra features have been done away with, such as the social connectivity options. What one gets simplified access to music, and the related settings include the playback quality. If one does not want to compromise on the audio quality, at least when efforts are made to connect to a Wi-Fi network, there is also the ability to switch to the high streaming quality.
