TikTok Lite: Small video entertainment app

TikTok Lite is the smaller-scale version of the popular TikTok video entertainment app designed for Android. TikTok Lite is the stripped-down and less demanding version of its parent app, taking up only a tenth of the space with most of the primary features still intact.

What is TikTok Lite?

TikTok Lite is made for people with older phones (less than 2GB of memory), limited internet, or those using slower 2G or 3G networks. It's like a special version of TikTok designed to work well even when your internet is not super fast. It helps you save data and only takes up a small amount of space on your phone - just 9MB.

TikTok Lite features

TikTok Lite, much like its parent app TikTok, allows users to view, share, like, and comment on the 12-second long videos. The app is designed with low data usage in mind, making the app smaller and easier to navigate. The app takes up very little data compared to the parent app’s average of 300 MB.

Here are more features of TikTok Lite:

Creating Better Videos

  • Easy Video Making: Just tap the "+" button to make new videos up to 3 minutes long. You can also put up photos and videos from your phone easily.
  • Duet Feature: This feature lets you make videos with someone else's video. It's a cool way to interact with others and be creative together.
  • Cool Visuals: Make your videos stand out with the latest effects, filters, music, emojis, and stickers. It helps your videos look unique and professional.
  • Connect Better: Use hashtags and tag friends in your videos to engage with your followers and others on TikTok.

Finding and connecting with friends made easy

  • Messaging Between TikTok Versions: You can easily send messages to people using TikTok or TikTok Lite.
  • Find Friends Easily: Use the quick search to find real-life friends. You can also find contacts from your phone or other social apps. Invite friends to join TikTok Lite via email or text to stay connected.
  • Build Closer Relationships: Connect more deeply with friends you see on your Feed or in the comments. Send private messages to enhance your social experience.


Unlike the original TikTok app, TikTok Lite doesn’t allow users to upload, edit, or otherwise perform administrative actions regarding their own videos. Uploading videos from your phone or otherwise modifying your account will require downloading the original app. This wouldn’t be as much of an issue if the app didn’t make false claims by advertising a creator studio or having an upload button left over from the original app’s GUI.

Alongside this is the TikTok app’s general level of disdain towards a wide community. The app has garnered a large amount of ridicule for both the content of the site and the overall handling of the system. The app has also come under fire by governments around the world, being banned in India with attempts to do the same in the U.S.

TikTok Lite alternatives

The competition for TikTok Lite is essentially the same as TikTok itself, though we’ll consider the lite version of competitors if possible. Instagram and Likee, specifically Likee Lite, are the most prominent competitors of the TikTok Lite app.

Instagram allows users to share images, gifs, and videos among a massive network of friends and strangers. This app has the seniority to TikTok, which means that it can be easier to get started there. Unlike TikTok Lite, this app allows direct uploads.

Likee Lite is functionally identical to TikTok Lite but less well known. The biggest difference between Likee Lite and TikTok Lite is that the Likee Lite app allows for direct uploads.

Our take

TikTok Lite is the lite version of the popular TikTok app. The app has been gutted down to the basics to the point of being a poor facsimile of the parent app. Without the upload function, there’s essentially no reason to use the app.

Should you download it?

No. The original app and alternatives are superior.
