OYO Hotels & Homes announced the global launch of OYO Lite, a lighter version of its consumer app. The new Lite app incorporates all the functionalities of the OYO app and has been designed to work in low connectivity areas or low networks to enhance the user experience.
With a size of less than 800 KB, OYO Lite app consumes less space while offering an optimized user interaction time and a seamless experience no matter how connected the user is. With this launch, OYO reiterates its commitment to providing quality living spaces to travellers.
Anil Goel, Chief Technology Officer, OYO Hotels & Homes said, “The Lite app is a step forward in that direction and will enable travellers to make last minute travel plans without worrying about network and availability of quality accommodations at the tap of a button. OYO Lite has also been designed as a solution to key problems users face – connectivity and space/storage constraints on phones. We feel that this product would be ideal for travellers who are remotely connected to the internet as well as those with basic smartphones.”
At less than 800 KB, it is less than 7% of the size of the current OYO app. OYO Lite is currently live and available to consumers across the globe on Android.
