Instagram testing Lite app in Mexico

Thursday 28 June 2018 | 09:52 CET | News
Instagram has begun testing a lightweight version of its app for less powerful phones in Mexico, reports TechCrunch. The new app, dubbed "Instagram Lite" is available in the Google Play App Store and takes up just 573 kilobytes compared to the 32 megabytes of Instagram's main app. Instagram Lite supports many of the same features as the regular Instagram app, including the ability to filter and post photos to the feed or Stories, watch Stories, and browse the Explore page. Messaging functionality will be added soon, according to the app listing details.
