As mentioned before, the Airtel Thanks Lite app has less than 1MB footprint, to be more precise it’s just 0.97MB in size. Airtel claims that the new app is a “small and light version of Airtel Thanks app“, which is designed to be faster. The Airtel Thanks Lite app allows users to use the app to manage and recharge the Airtel number even on a 2G data connection, which is commendable. It’s clear that the app is intended for entry-level and budget smartphones.

Additionally, the telco says that since the app is very lightweight, it uses less battery on your phone. The new app is very easy to use and allows users to recharge, see recommended packs, offers and cashback, and check account details like pack validity, daily data balance, and talktime balance.

Apart from these, the Airtel Thanks Lite app lets users stay updated with the latest news and also listen to the latest trending songs through Wynk Radio. This is all that the Thanks Lite app lets you do, unlike the original Airtel Thanks app that offers features like Airtel Payments Bank, dedicated Airtel Thanks section to explore rewards, and pay bills.

At the time of writing this, the Airtel Thanks Lite app has already been downloaded over 1,00,000 times on the Play Store and has a rating of 4.1 stars.
