Tik Tok, one of the last booms in Social Media and one of the most downloaded mobile applications in the second half of last year, has not only one, but two “Lite” applications.

Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat … have a Lite version, which is used mainly in developing countries and parts of the world where it is not so easy to connect to the Internet. Tik Tok, which already has more than 130 million users worldwide, also has its own light version.
In fact, the app of Chinese origin has two Lite versions. Whoever access Android and iOS app stores will see that there are two Lite versions, which differ, one from the other, in the name: one is Tik Tok Lite and the other is Tik Tok lite.
