Instagram Releases Stripped-Down
‘Lite’ Version of Application.
Instagram Lite has been
released around the globe. .
As of Wednesday, android
users in 170 countries have access
to the new version of the app.
According to Michelle Lourie, an Israel-based
product manager for Facebook, Instagram Lite is
meant for people with “storage constraints.” .
The application is designed to be more
accessible to those with limited date, minimal
phone storage or poor internet connection. .
No matter where they are, people want
to be entertained and inspired by those
that they love … It’s difficult to do that
on Instagram with an entry-level phone
that has storage constraints, Michelle Lourie, via statement.
It requires only 2 MB to download, which is drastically
less than the original version’s 30 MB size. .
Instagram Lite is most notably missing
some of the original data-rich features,
such as animations and AR filters. .
The application’s code is also offloaded into the
cloud in order to minimize storage needs. .
We wanted the Instagram experience
to remain fast, high-quality and reliable,
irrespective of the device, platform and
network people are on, Tzach Hadar, Director of Product Management
at Facebook Tel Aviv, via statement
