Instagram Lite Quietly Released to The Play Store
Instagram Lite, a much smaller version of the full Instagram app, has now landed in the Google Play Store. The app, which only 573K in size, was quietly released into the store late yesterday and appears to be limited to testing in Mexico at the moment. A broader roll out is expected, but it isn’t clear when that will happen.
The introduction of a lite version of Instagram goes with a current trend that is happening within app development which is to bring lighter weight apps that require less resources to mass of Android devices out in the market, especially in developing markets.
