Microsoft Launched Skype Lite for 2G smartphones

Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella launched a lighter version of Skype known as Skype Lite for 2G smartphones. It mainly targeted towards users with slow mobile data connections.

Skype Lite has been developed at Microsoft's Hyderabad centre and is based on the feedback from users which include huge number of users from India.

Skype Lite is less than 13MB in size. It comes with in-built data saving features such as automatic switching between networks and image compression. The image sharing between multiple users is done by the app automatically, thus eliminating the need for re-uploading the same image to share it with all the other users.

Skype Lite also allows users to track their data usage details directly from within the app. This can be checked via the hamburger menu, accessible by swiping from the left. It also includes a dark theme mode, which helps in battery conservation as well.  It also features automatic message filtering, which sorts messages sent by actual contacts from promotional texts.

Skype Lite is available on Android and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
