Microsoft has announced Skype Lite, a new, lightweight version of the popular messaging app for the Indian market. Available for Android, Skype Lite is meant to work more smoothly on 2G networks or areas with inconsistent coverage than its heavier bretheren.
Aside from all of the features backing up that "Lite" designation, the new app also packs SMS filtering, data monitoring, and even Skype Bots. In the future, Skype also plans to bake India's national identification number project, Aadhaar, into Skype Lite so you quickly verify who is calling.
If you call India home, you can grab Skype Lite for Android now on the Google Play store and give it a shot.
