Uber launches a low-data Lite app that's just 5MB in size
12 June, 2018, 17:37
Dubbed Uber Lite, the app comes in at just 5MB, and is designed primarily to run on low-end hardware and 2G networks. The app still features in-app support and you'll still be able to share your trip with friends and family, but it has a redesigned interface that relies less heavily on Global Positioning System and live access to maps. The app is made keeping in mind emerging markets, and India is the first place the company has chose to launch it. Uber Lite has been made available in Jaipur, Hyderabad, and Delhi for now. Users in these cities can join the waitlist to get early access to Uber Lite. If there are Global Positioning System or network issues, it will offer popular pickup points to choose from.
Keeping India's connectivity issues in mind, the Uber Lite app has a different interface that works for people even with limited data plans.
Like the regular Uber app, Uber Lite will be able to surface smarter recommendations over time as it learns your usage habits. The map view that we all know from Uber will not display by default, to keep the app running smoothly, but you can still tap the option to bring it up at any time.
Uber says it's also working on local language support, a progress bar that will let you follow your cab's progress, and the ability to book a ride even when you're offline.
Uber Lite has been built with India in mind - where it's now being piloted - but it will be coming to other regions around the world later on. Ola Lite comes in at just 580KB, and offers most of the features of the full-fledged app.
