Microsoft unveils Skype Lite for Android with Aadhar Integration for India

Satya Nadella CEO Microsoft Corporation

Skype Lite has other features that the full app doesn't, like dark mode and pinning contacts to the home screen.

Though WhatsApp also offers video calling, Microsoft is looking to offer something extra as the new announcements point out. The Skype Bot Platform, started a year ago, allowed developers to make their own chatbot to serve different requirements. Also, Skype Lite app is available only in India. Post installing the app on your Android smartphone, you can sign up via your mobile number, email id or your Skype name. Additionally, Skype Lite uses machine learning to de-clutter spam messages.

The Lite app will be available soon on the Google Play store.

Evers, Holtz advance to superintendent race
In addition to Republican groups, conservative advocacy group Wisconsin Family Action endorsed Holtz in the primary. There's only one statewide race on the ballot - a three way primary for state Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Saumya Chandra, Senior Program Manager for Microsoft's Digital India Team, said that Skype Lite "makes communicating with people simple by integrating all of your communication experiences into one app".

Skype Lite can also be set up to become your default SMS or phone application. Given the fact that picture sharing is pretty common these days, the app wil compress the photos before uploading them to ensure less data usage.

Speaking at the company's Future Decoded event in Mumbai Nadella said, "Microsoft's cloud and mobile technologies are being using across large, medium and small enterprises and across government departments in India".

Pruitt Suggests New Direction for EPA in Address to Employees
The Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) had requested access to those emails two years ago, but Pruitt's office refused. West Virginia leaders are hailing the confirmation of Scott Pruitt as the new administrator of the U.S.

With this integration, Skype users will be able to authenticate the identity of unknown callers in a variety of situations where identification verification is required, including job interviews, goods and property sale.

The app was developed by Microsoft's development centre in Hyderabad and will support seven Indian languages including Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. Also, the new app is created to run on old or low-end Android devices without consuming too much memory or processing power. So this placement product would help any college graduate student from any college, not just those college that already have a reputation of access to big firms, to realise their potential based on who they are as against the college they attend.

If we focus on some of the features highlighted by the application, Skype Lite weighs only 13MB, which will facilitate their download in those areas where download speeds are not what we are accustomed. The verification works like this: a user could ask from within the app while a call is underway to check for the verification of the other person. Microsoft said the app is optimized for 2G and flaky network connections and will consume less battery power.
