Facebook has been testing Instagram Lite for some time, but now they have officially launched the application. The new Instagram Lite app is less data-intensive and uses fewer resources of mobile so that users can utilize its features even if they are living in a low-band connectivity area.
The app is just 2MB in size because in this app data-rich animations and other heavy features were cut off. Moreover, Instagram Lite does not consist of any cube transitions and AR filters which are more data usage. The Instagram Lite app developers have almost inserted the same GIF stickers in this app which can be used in stories.
The Instagram Lite has also a dark mode feature for mobile users. The dark mode feature switches the white background-color into black background color and makes the text color grey. According to Facebook, people living in the shared areas and nearby will be able to browse “more privately and not bother those around them”.
Instagram Lite is providing its services in more than 170 countries and the user can download this app from the Google Play store now. According to Facebook promises, Instagram Lite will soon available all over the world.
