LinkedIn recently announced the availability of LinkedIn Lite in the South East Asia (SEA) region including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines to name a few. The new app will provide a simpler and faster user experience for professional users to stay connected.

“Besides providing a fast, data-light solution for professionals in slow network areas, we hope the LinkedIn Lite app will democratize access to economic opportunity...We recognize that no matter how good, valuable and beneficial a product is, all is lost when people can't use it. Regardless of their device or location, we hope to level the playing field for all LinkedIn members so they can get closer to their dream jobs, grow their networks and become more successful,” Akshay Kothari, Country Manager, Head of Product, LinkedIn India said.

Available for download through the GooglePlay store or through the web, LinkedIn Lite maintains key features such as, notifications, newsfeed, profile, messaging and networks.

Thanks to its simpler structure, even an Internet-capable mobile device with a 2G network allows users to access their profile. The Android app is also less than 1 Megabyte in size, allowing it to reduce data usage by 80 percent.

Having first been made available in India since September 2016, LinkedIn Lite was remarkably useful, thanks to its faster access more people were able to apply for jobs easily. Since then, LinkedIn Lite has been available in more than 60 countries around the world.
