Spotify Lite is a shortened version of the Spotify standard. Spotify Lite is only 15MB in size, while the standard Spotify on Android is up to 85MB. This version will be a reasonable option for users with limited storage capacity. It will be suitable for many older versions of the operating system, using less space, not only that this version will help us save battery more than the standard version. Spotify Lite still works like the main Spotify app.
THE INTERFACE HAS CHANGED A LOT
True to the compact and light lite version, the interface of Spotify Lite has also been released by the publisher, redesigned the interface to look a lot more compact, still looks quite similar to the main interface. If we pay a little attention, then we will notice the difference in this lite version, which is the navigation bar in the bottom corner of the screen. Spotify Lite only displays home, search, and favorite buttons, while the regular version layouts buttons such as our homepage, browse, search, radio, and library.
THE INSTALLATION MENU HAS ALSO CHANGED SIGNIFICANTLY
Speaking of the settings menu of Spotify Lite is also very minimalist; the publisher has removed the settings such as the volume level and quality in this version. In Spotify Lite, we are only allowed to check the amount of mobile data network space that the app has used and how much capacity the app has occupied.
We can also tweak ourselves, setting limits on Spotify Lite’s monthly data size usage, including limited-size options such as 500MB, 2GB, and 3GB.
In the standard version of Spotify, we are allowed full access to detailed features, including offline mode, connectivity, social networking features, filters, volume levels, and music quality,… But to hit the tastes of low-cost phones, Spotify has turned down fewer features to create a version of Spotify Lite to suit these lines better.
MUSIC RUNNERS HAVE DRAWBACKS
In the standard version of Spotify, we can still select and listen to some specific songs, and we can download the ones we like to listen to offline when we have paid a daily fee. But for the Spotify Lite version, it’s pretty much all removed; whether you’re a paid or non-paid user, you still can’t choose a specific song for you to listen to and download. We can only listen to a kind of song mix. This is a big minus in the Spotify Lite version.
In my opinion, it is enough to prioritize the removal of unnecessary features such as Car View or animation. Still, this depletion is really disappointing for those who experience this version of Spotify Lite.
THE VERSION ONLY APPEARS IN SOME COUNTRIES.
Spotify Lite has only officially launched in 36 countries so far, mostly only in places with low-cost phones. Countries released such as Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
I have used many versions of Lite since I know Lite, which will remove unnecessary, annoying features to reduce our battery and capacity.
