Makaan.com, part of Elara Technologies Pte Ltd. which also owns Housing.com and PropTiger.com,today announced that it has introduced an Instant App version for Makaan App.Makaan.com is India’s first digital real estate company to have made its app compatible to Google’s Instant Apps, available to Android users. The Makaan Instant App is in line with the brand’s vision of empowering its users with toptechnology solutions.
With Makaan Instant App, an Android user will now be able to experience the ease of Makaan App without actually having to install it on his/her mobile phone. If a user sends a link to property details from Makaan.com’s website to another user, the recipient will be able to access the details even if he/she doesn’t have the app installed. Whereas, without Instant App, tapping on the link would’ve taken the recipient to the web version of the site.
A user simply has to go to ‘Settings’, select ‘Google’ and then activate ‘Instant Apps’ from the list. He then has to visit Makaan.com website through Google on his mobile phone and engage in the most seamless property search experience ever, similar to using an app. This helps users to save storage space in their phone.
Commenting on the development, Ravi Bhushan, Group CPTO, Housing.com, PropTiger.com and Makaan.com, said, “The usage of mobile phonesfor transaction purposes has seen ahuge surge in India.
