Without any announcement from the company Instagram Lite version appeared on Google Play store. As Instagram future growth depends on the developing world. Instagram hit the milestone of 1 billion users last week. Instagram Lite is a slimmed down version of Instagram designed to sip, not gulp, mobile data.
The lightweight version of the photo-sharing app is only 573 kilobytes(less than 1MB) instead of 32MB like the main app. You can post and share photos and view stories on the app, but some features are currently unavailable, including posting videos and direct messaging between users. Instagram might or might not reassess the lack of those features, depending on its trial’s results
The application’s smaller size also makes it possible for people who only have access to slow internet connection to download it from Google Play. The app will run on devices running Android versions 5.0 and up.
