The new app has been designed to work in low-connectivity areas or low networks to enhance user experience, a statement said.
With a size of less than 800 KB, the app consumes less space while offering an optimised user interaction time and a seamless experience, it added.
OYO Lite occupies less than seven per cent of the size of the current OYO app.
The app is currently live and available to consumers across the globe on Android, the statement said.
Over the last few years, various online platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Ola and LinkedIn have introduced lighter versions of their apps which minimise data usage, load quickly on slower networks and take up less space on device.
Founded in 2013, OYO currently has a footprint in more than 500 cities across 10 countries including Malaysia, Nepal, the UK, the UAE, Indonesia, and the Philippines. It has over 18,000 buildings and 6,36,000 units under management and more than 45,000-holiday homes on its platform. Its investors include Greenoaks Capital, Sequoia India, Lightspeed India, Hero Enterprise and China Lodging Group.
