Release Date in India, Features & all you need to know about the Tinder Lite App
It’s not just the brand-name cola that offers a fancy diet version of itself anymore, mobile applications or apps as we lovingly call them, have taken over this market too, and introduced ‘lite’ versions of themselves in the last couple of years.
Some of our everyday apps: Facebook, Instagram Twitter, Uber and Ola already have their own lite variants – Facebook Lite, Instagram Lite, Twitter Lite, Uber Lite and Ola Lite. These lightweight apps do the same heavy lifting as that of their full-fledged counterparts but consume lesser data and storage space on your phone. To give you some context, the Uber Lite app is just 5 MB – your gallery is probably filled with selfies that are harbouring more space than that, right now – and runs on most Android devices. The app can be downloaded and used in areas with bad connectivity. But that’s still not light enough, Uber’s biggest competitor in India, Ola’s Ola Lite takes up less than 1 MB on any Android phone and works great in 2G and 3G networks.
While apps like Facebook Lite, Twitter Lite and Instagram Lite are great alternatives to the full version that spans across 200-300 MB, to keep in touch with friends and family, they don’t really excel in setting up potential matches and dates. But fret not, Tinder has got your love life covered with a new update — Tinder Lite.
All you need to know about Tinder Lite –
Tinder’s parent company Match Group is planning to launch a lightweight version of the app, Tinder Lite soon. “Tinder Lite app would be smaller and better suited to the area where cellular data “comes at a premium,” according to Engadget.
The announcement was made last week after Match Group’s CEO Mandy Ginsberg revealed the company’s earnings from the first quarter of 2019. One of the most notable findings from this report was that Tinder currently has 4.7 million subscribers; increasing 384,000 sequentially and 1.3 million year-over-year.
Even though Ginsberg has not mentioned any special Tinder Lite features or release date (other than “soon”), he did point to Southeast Asia as a high priority market, where there’s an influx of young people into packed cities, reported Engadget.
