LinkedIn Lite, the lightweight Android app that launched in India last month is now available to download in more than 60 countries. The app has been specifically designed for low bandwidth areas, and it’s based on the mobile web app that also launched first in India earlier this year.
“The Android mobile app was inspired by the success of LinkedIn Lite mobile web,” shared Head of LinkedIn India Akshay Kothari in a blog post. Compared to the standard LinkedIn client, LinkedIn Lite less than 1MB is size and can reduce data usage by 80%. “It’s a lighter version of our Flagship app and includes all key features such as news feed, profile, networks, messaging, notifications, so our members can stay informed, get ahead in their careers and be more productive,” added Kothari.
For now, the list of 60 countries where the LinkedIn Lite is available includes South Africa, the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria and more but not major markets like the US and the UK. If you want to try it, you can get the Android app from the download link below.
