Music is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of your network connectivity, data plan, and the phone you’re using. That’s why today, we’re officially introducing Spotify Lite.
Spotify Lite is a small, fast and simplified version of our unparalleled music experience that works much like the main Spotify app—search and play your favorite songs and artists, save them, share them with others, discover new music, and enjoy playlists made just for you—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. Spotify Lite can be downloaded separately, available for both Free and Spotify Premium users, and used either alongside or independently from the main Spotify app on all Android devices running 4.3 (Jelly Bean) or higher.
“Southeast Asia is one of the fastest growing music markets in the world, but music streaming is only just taking hold. With mobile phone adoption skyrocketing and many users coming online for the first time, Spotify Lite opens up the Spotify experience to millions more music fans,” says Gautam Talwar, Managing Director, Spotify Southeast Asia.
With Spotify Lite, controlling your phone data and storage is a breeze. At only 10MB, Spotify Lite is quick to install and load while offering the same great listening experience that lets you discover, play, and enjoy millions of songs. You’ll also get the ability to set a data limit and get a notification when you reach it, so you can stop worrying about data and just focus on finding your next favourite song. No need to worry if you’re running low on storage—Spotify Lite also allows you to control your cache, and clear it with a single tap.
