Facebook Launches 'Instagram Lite' designed for high-quality Instagram experience using minimal data.


Facebook recently launched Instagram Lite. This new app for Android is designed to provide people living in rural and remote communities with a high-quality Instagram experience using minimal data.

This lightweight version of the Instagram app was designed for Android with less use of data and works across all networks. The app is less than 2MB in size – considerably less than the full-size version, which was closer to 30 MB. It also has improved speed, performance, and responsiveness.

“Our teams build these lightweight versions of our apps for people with low connectivity or limited data plans because our basic premise is to leave no one behind,” adds Tzach Hadar, Director of Product Management at Facebook Tel Aviv, one of the largest strategic engineering hubs for Facebook globally. “We wanted the Instagram experience to remain fast, high-quality and reliable, irrespective of the device, platform and network people are on.”

More than 170 countries will be able to download Instagram Lite in the Google Play Store to have a high-quality Instagram experience, no matter what network or device they’re on.
