Instagram Lite is rolling out in 170 countries — no Reels support for now


Starting today, Instagram is launching its 2MB lite app in 170 countries around the world. The app, designed by the Tel Aviv-based Facebook team,

is another addition to the company’s “Lite” apps, which target phones with limited specs and regions with poor connectivity.

The company initially launched Instagram Lite in India last December. Last month, it introduced coil support in the app. However, unfortunately this support is only limited to users in India, and the global version will not have this feature at this time.

It’s important to note that Instagram had a Lite version before that, but it was killed last May to pave the way for this new version.
