Uber for emerging market release streamlined version app volume is only 5MB

Sina Technology News Beijing time in the late June 12th news, taxi application Uber today issued a simplified version of the application (App) "Uber Lite", aimed at attracting emerging market users.

The volume of Uber Lite is only 5MB, and the response time is only 300 milliseconds. Uber said the move aims to accelerate the speed of users' taxi and further attract consumers in emerging markets.

Uber Lite is currently only on the India market, but Uber says it will be launched in more countries later this year. In contrast, the size of the ordinary version of Uber app is about 181MB.

Uber Lite is mainly suitable for users with slow network speed, or limited mobile data traffic. If Uber finds user's network speed or slow GPS positioning speed, it will provide users with some popular car points or destinations, and users only need to click without manually entering.

After the sale of business in China and Southeast Asia, India has become an important market for Uber in Asia, which is also an important reason for Uber to take the lead in the introduction of Uber Lite in India. (Li Ming)
