Microsoft is building its first LinkedIn-integrated service in India

Microsoft's Skype Lite free Android app has been optimized to run on 2G networks or in challenging network conditions. The new app is specifically aimed at Indian users and offers a data-friendy Skype experience. Skype Lite is a new and light version of Microsoft's popular cross-platform calling and instant messaging app Skype. Skype users can now send verification requests to people they are talking to. The company is also offering a "lite" version of LinkedIn, reflecting the need for vendors to factor in low Internet bandwidth, usually running on low-cost and inadequately featured smartphones, when designing products for markets in countries like India.

In a bid to expand its outreach among consumers having slow internet connectivity, Microsoft has announced a Made in India version of Skype app in Mumbai on Wednesday. The new app will have support for nine languages, and will include support for bots - a pillar of the company's development plans for its communication platform. This will then require the interviewee to enter their 12 digit unique Aadhaar ID into the app. As things stand right now, it seems unlikely that Skype Lite will make its way to developed countries, but the app may launch in more developing countries with emerging markets in the future.

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 app automatically compresses photos, videos and large files, placing less of a strain on overworked networks.

As for the features, the Lite app has nearly all the features from the main app, and adds seven local languages: Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu. This is expected to give a decisive advantage to the Skype Lite. Microsoft stated that this could help Government agencies. As Skype + Aadhaar feature, it is meant to be used to confirm a user. Meanwhile, the private companies can use the Aadhaar's infrastructure to interact with a database and thereby integrate it into its services. Using this service, recruiters from outside of India will be able to verify identities as they conduct interviewers of users in India, providing safe authentication and also making the interview process a lot smoother.
