Another key difference between the standard and lighter Spotify apps is a design change; your libraries on Lite are replaced with favorites.
Spotify Lite can be downloaded separately, both by free and premium users, and used either alongside or independently from the main Spotify app on all Android phones running version 4.3 or higher.
“We announced the availability of Spotify Lite Beta in India a couple of months ago to gauge user interest, which was high. As a result, Spotify Lite is now out of the test mode and available as an app for all users in the country," Amarjit Singh Batra, Spotify managing director (India), said in a statement.
“This small and fast app will make millions of free songs more accessible to those with older mobile devices or limited storage, and those in poor internet connectivity areas, or those who just don't want to spend more data on listening to music," he added.
Spotify had silently debuted in India in February 2019 with flexible subscription plans to attract users. The music streaming app has over 2 million users in the country at present.
The app is available in 36 markets around Asia, Latin America, West Asia and Africa through Google Play.
