Uber launches lite app in Kenya to save on space and data

Monday 28 January 2019 | 09:29 CET | News
Uber has launched the Uber Lite application to save users space and run on phones with low connectivity on any Android device and on any network. Uber Lite takes less than 5MB to download and guides users through requests by detecting their current location, hence minimising typing time. Maps in Uber Lite are not loaded by default, which keeps the app light and fast.
