OYO Launches Lighter Version of its App for Android Users

OYO today has footprint in more than 800 cities across 24 countries

India’s largest hotel chain OYO on Thursday announced the global launch of a lighter version of its app — “Oyo Lite” — for the Android users.
Designed to work in areas of low connectivity, the “OYO Lite” app is sized just 800KB, which is less than 7 per cent of the size of the current OYO app, the company said in a statement.
“OYO Lite has been designed as a solution to connectivity and 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,” said Anil Goel, Chief Technology Officer, OYO Hotels and Homes.
The app also features an in-app SOS button to ensure assistance from the on-ground hotel staff as well as from 24×7 OYO Safety Response Team (SRT).

The button is also capable to initiate a call with local law enforcement authorities across the country, the company added.
OYO, however, did not elaborate on plans to make the Lite app available for iOS users.
OYO today has footprint in more than 800 cities across 24 countries.
With over 18,000 buildings and 636,000 units under management and more than 45,000-holiday homes, the company is backed by leading investors, including the SoftBank Vision Fund, Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Ventures, Hero Enterprise and China Lodging Group. (IANS)
