India’s Oyo hotels launches ‘Oyo Lite’ app globally
The app has been designed to work in low connectivity areas
India’s Oyo has launched a faster app — Oyo Lite — that works with low data.
The app, according to officials from the company, has all the “functionalities of the Oyo app” but works in low connectivity areas. In addition to that, the lite version of the app has been designed to work with limited storage options, speed and battery.
In a statement online, the company said, “The inception of an OYO lite app is to take ownership of the end-to-end customer experience, right from the booking process up to the check-out. With the lighter version, we are offering an optimised user interaction time and seamless experience to a user no matter how much the network fluctuates and no matter how limited the phone storage is.”
This is the second feature that the company has launched in the recent past, the first being the in-app SOS button. When guests use this feature, they will receive the support of the local on-ground team as well as 24×7 Oyo Safety Response Team (SRT) wherein they can also initiate a call with local law enforcement authorities across the country.
