The Shazam Lite App Uses Less Data and Storage Space

Shazam is easily the most popular and well-regarded music-recognition app out there, but for people who live in developing countries and don't necessarily have the highest quality Internet or the most expansive data and storage at their disposal, the app can be rather heavy and cumbersome to use. For this reason, Shazam has gone ahead and released a newer lightweight version of its app specifically for Android devices.

This pared-down version of the app takes up nearly 25 MB less space, but can still take care of all the usual Shazam functionality in terms of song identification and the ability to save recently identified tunes. However, the Shazam Lite app can easily be installed on older Android devices.

Ultimately, this lightweight music-recognition app speaks to the growing awareness of major app developers and companies to cater and mold their offerings to the unique needs of high-volume emerging markets.
