    [UPDATE] – Today, Spotify officially launches Spotify Lite globally. Previously, it launches the Spotify Lite app in few countries as a beta version. Now, it is available in 36 markets around Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.

    Spotify is one of the world’s most popular music streaming platform. According to Marketing Magazine, Malaysians are spending an average of 148 minutes per day listening to music on Spotify. To provide wider music experience to more users, Spotify is rolling out the Spotify Lite beta app for the Malaysians. Spotify launches this app in three countries last year which are Brazil, Mexico, and Indonesia.

    Today Malaysia will be the fourth country to receive this application. However, Spotify currently only allows Android devices to download this application from the Google Play Store. Apart from that, Spotify is also urging users to give their feedback on the usage and also request new features for the app in the Spotify community page.

    What is Spotify Lite?

    As the name itself says, “Lite” is the lighter version of the current Spotify app. This means this app is mainly for users who are having low-end smartphones with slower internet connections.

    The main key difference between these two apps is the amount of data being consumed is lesser. Other than the size of the app is also lesser to the current Spotify app. However, there are few downsides using the lighter version. First, users would not be able to download songs for offline usage. Moreover, the high-quality setting is also disabled due to high data consuming. Users can set their monthly cap of data usage by the app at 250MB, 500MB, 750MB, 1GB, 2GB, or 3GB.

    In conclusion, if you a music listener who cares about your data usage, then you should give a try of the Spotify Lite app. Sharing some of your cool ideas to Spotify could make Spotify implement the feature one day on the Spotify Lite app.
