    NEW DELHI: Oyo Hotels & Homes announced on Thursday that it is launching Oyo Lite, a lighter version of the consumer app globally. Oyo said its new Lite app incorporates all the functionalities of the Oyo app and that it has been designed to work in low connectivity areas. Oyo said 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 devices.

    Anil Goel, Chief Technology Officer, at Oyo Hotels & Homes said the Lite app 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.”

    Oyo said it had also recently launched an in-app SOS button which enables guests experiencing any emergency situation to not only receive the assistance of the on-ground hotel staff but also benefit from the expertise of a specially trained 24x7 Oyo Safety Response Team (SRT) and also initiate a call with local law enforcement authorities across the country.

    Once the company is listed on the stock exchange and their p& l is published by the auditors. Then only we will be able to assess the company. There is no reason to believe whatever they are staying now.
