Since the Instagram didn’t instantly respond to a request for any comment, but one of the spokespeople in a post told that the Instagram-Lite version began testing in Mexico this week.
They also added that we are recently working for testing a new version of the Instagram for Android that takes up the less space on your Smartphone or any other Android device, and it will use the fewer data and download faster.
The application looks geared towards the emerging markets, where the connection of the internet is generally slower.
