Spotify Lite is officially launched in Indonesia.

Just like many other companies that provide certain services that are accessible via phones and tablets, Spotify launched a “light” version of its mobile app, it’s Spotify Lite. The app is meant to enable users to enjoy the company's music streaming service regardless of their network connectivity, data plan, and quality of their phones.

Spotify Lite is a smaller and simplified version of the full-fledged Spotify app, which lets you use the same features while requiring fewer resources, be it hardware or software. According to Spotify, the Lite app can be downloaded separately, both for free and Spotify Premium users.

More importantly, it can be used independently from the main Spotify app on all Android phones powered by Android 4.3 or higher. And, as we mentioned earlier, Spotify Lite is just 10MB, so you'll be able to download it faster and you won't need too much free storage on your phone.

Since its purpose is to eat up less data, Spotify Lite comes with a special option that will allow you to set a data limit and get a notification when you reach it. For today, Spotify Lite available in 36 markets including Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay, and South Africa.
