Tech giant Google has rolled WebLite in Nigeria claiming it enables faster and more affordable access to the web across Africa.

In a statement gotten by TechCity, Google stated that when it comes to searching, faster is always better.

“Whether you’re commuting to work, searching for the latest sports news, or for the phone number of a nearby restaurant, quick access to information from the web is crucial. In Africa, we see that nearly 40% of people with Android devices may be experiencing a slow or delayed connection while they’re on the web due to usage of low RAM devices,” Google stated.

The company said it is now introducing a feature that will help users to get the information they’re looking for quicker, easier and more affordably.

“Now for most of Africa, when you search on Google with a low RAM device via the Google App, Chrome or Android browser, web pages that you access from Google’s search results page will be optimized to load faster and use less data,” Google stated.
