Earlier this year, Spotify debuted in India confronting licensing troubles. Quenching the longing of music lovers in the country, it managed to gain 1 million users in its initial week and surpassed 100 million bar within a few months. The Sweden-based music streaming platform has now launched a lighter version of the app, Spotify Lite, for Android in 36 countries including India.

The Spotify Lite was earlier in the beta globally and in India since last June in India. Currently, its Google Play Store listing says so:
