In 2018 Instagram kite was inaugurated, but over time in the year 2020, it was pulled up by google play.

Difference between Instagram and Instagram lite?
The main motive of both the application is identical. They are both social networking sites that are a good source of entertainment and also a source of making money for the users. They have the option to upload stories ig as and when they wish to.
People from all over the world are using this application as per their interests. There is just a minor difference between the two about which we will discuss in detail:
- Application size
The main reason for the invention of Instagram lite is that when people were using Instagram, then at that time, they should have ample space to use the application most appropriately.
If we talk about Instagram, its size was 30-50 MB, which is a big size that requires a good internet connection to download it from the application. But, on the other hand, if we talk about the Instagram lite, then it is only of 2 MB that is easy for a user to take out in their android phone.
So it can be concluded that the size of the application plays the most crucial role, especially for the people who have less space on their phones.
- Features in the application
As we all know, Instagram lite is smaller in size than the base application, so it is quite evident that it lacks in certain features. When in the year 2018, when the Instagram lite was inaugurated at that time there were minor features that were included in it but with the passage of there were some features that were added in the Instagram lite.
Like people now can direct messages to the person or group chat with texts, images, GIF. But if we talk about the chat theme’s customization, this feature is still not available to people. Not only this, the people who are using Instagram lite have the problem that they cannot be live on their page.
Another most significant difference is that as Instagram lite was basically launched keeping in mind the problem that is faced by the Indians, so it includes all the local languages like Punjabi, Hindi, Bengali, and Tamil. On the other hand, the original application of Instagram only included Hindi as the language.
These are some of the differences that people between the two applications see. People can make the selection of the one that they think is as per their requirement as the main functions of both the applications are the same. Both the sites are known to provide the facility of the stories ig.
