The lightest app of Instagram for Android introduces a new feature that reduces the distance between versions: Instagram lite now offers the short videos of Reels. With this movement, users of the Lite version have direct access to content similar to TikTok.

Lite applications are a variant that Facebook usually offers its users. Aware that their ‘normal’ mobile apps fatten up your weight and performance with filler features, those who want a lighter experience have at their fingertips Facebook Lite or Messenger Lite. As well Instagram Lite, although this app is not currently available worldwide. And now it adds functions.


The TikTok of Instagram also in the Lite version

Instagram introduced its short TikTok videos and then associate a shortcut in the lower menu of the app. In this way users can easily see the reels of their followers without the need to have them intermixed in the timeline of pictures. And Instagram Lite has decided to do the same when it has decided to introduce support for Reels.

How can we read in XDA Developers, Instagram Lite includes Reels support within the app; thereby increasing the functions of an application that should be as light as possible. From now on, users (currently in India) will have access to short Reels videos to play on their smartphone; with the disadvantage that they will not be able to upload their own videos, only play the Reels that others publish.

Access to Reels is located in the lower menu of Instagram Lite, in a position similar to that occupied by that content in the ‘complete’ Instagram application. With the difference that the Lite version does not include access to the store (for now) and keeps the shortcut to uploading content in the center of the bottom menu.

Instagram Lite is available in few territories, most likely you cannot download it from the Google Play Store. Yes, you can use the APK: you have the application in Apk mirror. We have tested and access to the Reels still does not appear outside of India, the interface is likely to change only in that country.
