Free social media app
Instagram Lite brings the social media platform to Android devices in this smaller, more compact package. The popular social media app is repurposed to work on all devices and networks. This new rendition of the app offers everything you’ll need for the Instagram experience, no matter what device you own.
Small package, significant gains
Socialize with your friends or learn something new with Instagram Lite. You can experience the best features of Instagram on any Android device. You’ll be able to see what friends are doing and what new interests you can develop in this clean, smaller edition of the app. This version doesn’t compromise any features. However, users will need to keep in mind that because it is a Lite edition, some features, while still around, are indeed limited.
Add photos to share with everyone
Take hold of your Instagram story and add photos that disappear after 24 hours. Message friends or soon-to-be friends using the Instagram messaging system. Or look at other users’ Feeds to see what they’re up to. Share your photos (and videos) on this app and see what the world makes of your profile.
Difference from the original Instagram app
The most significant difference is the file size, with Instagram Lite coming in at 2MB as opposed to 80MB. The Lite version only has support for nine languages, and you won’t be able to go live. There are also limited features for Reels and IGTV.
Instagram Lite is aimed at those who need a bit of a lighter experience in their Instagram world. It could fit in well with someone that is limited to an iPod, or in this case, an older Android device. There’s no need to worry about how the Lite version will perform. It’s similar to apps like Facebook and Twitter.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you need a version of the app that isn’t as heavy, it’s for you. You may also download it if you want a less memory-consuming experience than the original edition of the app.
- Lighter on the phone than the standard version
- Fewer features means a more streamlined experience
- Fully functioning message system despite Lite edition
- Limited features and functionality compared to the standard
