American convenience giant Uber has now decided to bring a lite version of its original application.
The Uber Lite app which cuts down on the heavy animation and the default map view will prove useful for users who are low on storage and are on a slow internet connection.
Using GPS, the app will automatically detect users’ location, and there will also be a familiar textbox where they will be able to enter their destination details.
Users will be able to see the closest available Ubers along with fare estimates, and options of UberGo, Pool, Premier, Moto, and UberXL.
Users will also have the usual options of calling the driver and checking the ride status.
Similar to the original Uber app, the lite edition will also learn to give smarter recommendations to the users based on usage habits.
Uber is also reportedly working on a progress bar to track rides along with supposed development on local language support.
This move by the USA based company comes after Ola, which is the home-grown cab company of India, launched its lite version of the app sized at only 580KB.
Although the Uber Lite app is not out yet for the users, interested people can sign up for an early access.
