What is Uber Lite? Learn how to download and use the lightest version of the app

Uber Lite is a more economical version of the Uber app, which is available to users of Android phones. The platform promises to consume less storage and processing space. With only 5 megabytes, the application requires little from the Internet and can work in places where mobile coverage does not offer fast connection. In this way, the alternative tool also saves data by spending less data of the contracted franchise without compromising the operation of the service.

Uber Lite can be used by people without a platform account and by ordinary users. Simply use the cell number authentication procedure so that the system recognizes an existing account or creates a new profile. The app is currently only for users of the Google operating system, meaning it excludes iPhone fans (iOS) from Apple. Want to know what Uber Lite is and how it works?
