A lesser-known version of the TikTok app, called TikTok Lite was launched in 2018.
The app was primarily utilized in countries where Wi-Fi is scarce, making the regular version of TikTok run at a slower pace.
What is TikTok Lite?
TikTok Lite is a helpful tool for those who are looking to preserve their data and speed up their Wi-Fi while using the app.
This secondary app is similar to the regular TikTok app by allowing users to post 15-second videos that use slo-mo, emojis, filters, graphics, and more.
The effects used on the platform are extensive and TikTok Lite recommends trending filters and will show the filters that are in lesser demand.
A lite version of any app means it uses less data which can speed up the app and in the case of TikTok Lite, the app has an installation size of 30MB versus 125MB in the full version, making TikTok Lite ideal if your phone has limited storage.
When was TikTok Lite released and what countries is it available in?
The original version of TikTok was released in September 2017 and the light version was released 11 months later on August 6, 2018.
TikTok Lite was first released in Thailand before expanding to a more global market and was primarily used in Asian and African regions.
This version of TikTok has become the most popular in Indonesia and has gained popularity in Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
What do the reviews say about TikTok Lite?
Reviews of the TikTok Lite are primarily positive with a 4.4 out of five approval rating on Google Play.
One person said they believe the light version is better than the original adding it is a faster network. They added that this is app is “recommended for other user’s who have low memory or network problems with the original app.”
Another individual commented and said, “I love this app, because I don’t have enough space to install the first one because it has large MB or GB, thanks goodness I found it, and If you don’t have a lot of space I suggest you should install it instead of the first TikTok, on my opinion TikTok lite is 100% better than TikTok without lite!!”
