Instagram Lite, the new upgrade, has silently approached without any prior announcement in Google Play Store. This photo and video-sharing platform upgrade has been released specially for users who are worried about issues like slow network connections, less storage space, and costly data packages.

This hints that the app was already out this week. On this, the Instagram spokesperson said: “We are testing a new version of Instagram for Android that takes up less space on your device, uses less data, and starts faster.” With the release of this statement, the app was spotted on Google Play Store today.

Instagram Lite will occupy very less space than the main app. The size of the main app is 32 GB, whereas Instagram Lite is only 573 KB which is almost 1/55th of the size of the first version. With this, the users having older phones with fewer storage issues can happily install and access the Instagram Lite app.

Instagram Lite lets you access various options like the filter and post photos to the Feed or Stories, watch Stories, and browse the Explore page. While these features still exist some options like sharing videos or Direct message to friends was missing in this app.
