Spotify has just made the Spotify Lite beta app available to Malaysian users.
The app is a lighter version of the Spotify app that consumes less data and uses less storage space on a device, and is currently only available for Android devices.
It includes most of the features from the regular version like creating playlists, adding favorites, music discovery and recommendations. Spotify Lite does not however have support for podcasts as of now.
Currently, the Spotify Lite app does not support some of the features that Spotify Premium offers. Users are not able to download songs to be played offline and the high-quality setting is also absent at this time. The app suggests users swap to the regular Spotify app to have access to those features.
The app can display the amount of mobile data it has consumed, and users are provided with the option to set a monthly cap to its data usage, with the cap set at 250MB, 500MB, 750MB, 1GB, 2GB, or 3GB a month.
As the current release of Spotify Lite is a beta version, Spotify has urged users to give feedback about the app and request for new features in the app on their community ideas page.
The Spotify Lite app was initially launched last year on the Google Play store for users in Brazil, Mexico, and Indonesia.
Users can download the app from the Google Play Store.
