After rolling out its (much) smaller Pinterest Lite app, last year, Pinterest has now announced the app is being launched globally.
Pinterest recently started rolling out a Pinterest Lite app for Android in Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, and Mexico. This week, the visual discovery platform is announcing the global availability of the app.
Just like counterparts like Facebook Lite or Twitter Lite, Pinterest Lite offers most features within the normal Pinterest app, however, the app itself takes up significantly less space on your device. While the normal Pinterest app takes up around 140 MB, Pinterest Lite takes up an impressively small 1.4 MB.
The launch of Pinterest Lite is part of Pinterest’s efforts to grow its audience in markets outside the U.S. – which is actually where most users come from anyway. The app lets users download the app more quickly, in places around the world with slower internet connections.
It also means that user experience will improve significantly in these places as well. “The goal is to bring Pinterest to everyone around the world so they can discover inspiration related to their interests wherever they might be,” a Pinterest spokesperson said, commenting on the original launch back in October.
Users can download Pinterest Lite in the Play store. Arabic speakers may have to wait a bit as Pinterest says the version will be launching for them soon.
