Instagram Lite

Facebook’s Instagram Lite app is just under 2MB

Facebook has announced a new lite app for Instagram called Instagram Lite. The social-app was announced at an event called “Facebook Fuel for India.” The app is designed for people who live in a poor network area. It works with low-end phones which don’t have many resources and processing power. The app is similar to other lite apps such as Facebook Lite, Twitter Lite, and more.

List of features not available on Instagram Lite

The app misses some key features as Reels, Shopping, and IGTV. But overall look and feel look pretty much similar to the full-fledged app. Currently, the app is available only in India in multiple Indian regional languages including Bangla, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu.

The app was available on the Play Store since December 9 and now has around 5 million active installs. Earlier in the year, Facebook discontinued the old Lite app which was available in countries including Mexico, Kenya, and the Philippines.
