Amazon Quietly Released A New Mobile Web Browser Called… ‘Internet’
By Izza Sofia, 20 Apr 2018
Amazon launched a web browser app called the ‘Internet’.
It is targeted for emerging markets where high-speed connectivity is limited. Designed to use minimal storage and data, the app first appeared on Google Play Store in March, and has less than 1,000 downloads, according to TechCrunch.
It is currently only available to Android users in India whose phones run on Android 5.0 and higher. The ‘Internet’ supports ‘Private’ tabs, which means that users are able to browse freely without storing to history.
According to the app’s description, it also keeps you updated on news and cricket. Its Google Play description also states that it is “private” and does not collect data from its users.
The ‘Internet’ is similar to other apps such as ‘Facebook Lite’, ‘Gmail Go’ and ‘YouTube Go’. These apps are faster and lighter versions of the original ones.
Basic features are included, however, they take up lesser space and usually used among areas that do not have efficient network connections.
