Oyo Hotels launches 'lite' version of app

DUBAI, May 21, 2019

Oyo Hotels & Homes, South Asia’s largest and fastest-growing chain of leased and franchised hotels, homes and living spaces, has announced the global launch of OYO Lite, a lighter version of the 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 optimised 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.
In the UAE, Oyo is present across five emirates with over 1,700 rooms in 80 hotels and homes. Globally, Oyo hosts guests in over 636,000 rooms, and more than 45,000-holiday homes and is adding over 64,000 rooms every month to its chain.

Oyo offers quality and affordable accommodations at the tap of a button with technology by its side. This launch further reinforces the fact that technology plays a key role in all areas of guest experience.
Anil Goel, chief technology officer, Oyo Hotels & Homes, said: “At Oyo, we are committed to creating multiple touchpoints with guests for a seamless, convenient and comfortable experience by leveraging our technology prowess. 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. With security, quality, location and price being key considerations for a majority of travellers in the budget to mid-scale segment, Oyo aims to help create a perfect space in every place by solving for each of the said considerations through a combination of technology and on-ground interventions. 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 per cent of the size of the current Oyo app. Oyo Lite is currently live and available to consumers across the globe on Android. - TradeArabia News Service
