Facebook Launches Instagram Lite

Science, Tech, World Comments Off 18

Facebook said on Wednesday it was dispatching a “light” variant of Instagram in 170 nations that will empower individuals with helpless web to get to the photograph and video sharing social networking service. The app itself requires just 2 megabytes (MB) – versus 30 MB for Instagram – and runs even on slower 2G networks.

Instagram Lite will be available for Android-based phones and require less bandwidth than the traditional version. Hadar, who heads Facebook’s R&D in Israel, said 170 countries did not represent a full global launch, but “it’s a step on the way.” A lite version of Facebook itself has been available globally for five years.

Instagram Lite will be available for Android-based phones and require less bandwidth than the traditional version. The app itself requires just 2 megabytes (MB) – versus 30 MB for Instagram – and runs even on slower 2G networks, allowing customers in parts of India, Africa, Asia and Latin America with older internet infrastructure to access the service.
