One of the main problems that Android app developers come across is the fragmentation of this operating system: there are different versions working at the same time, some of which have been around for quite a few years, as well as a huge range of smartphones and tablets with different capacities (we're not all lucky enough to own the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 or a Google Pixel, as you've probably realized). And we don't all have the same access to the Internet: some countries are still on 3G whilst others are starting to use 5G.
To solve these differences and bring their apps to all users, some developers bring out Lite versions as is the case of Skype. Here we have the version of one of the most popular chat and video call apps in the world that comes along with all the basics to be able to use the functions offered by this service.
Smaller and faster, with a lower resource consumption
Skype Lite - Free Video Call & Chat offers the functions of the app on Android devices that are usually limited by their own configuration or due to the networks used to access the service. Thus, sending messages, making voice calls or establishing video conferences will demand a lower resource consumption in all aspects.
Don't let anything get in the way with communicating with your loved ones.
Although it has been conceived to be used in India, the app is available in Google Play at a global level so that its APK can be downloaded by any Android user. You'll be able to make the most of the following functions:
- Free voice and video calls with any user even if you're using a different version of Skype: Window 10 PC or previous, Mac, Web, iPhone, the full version of Skype for Android, Windows Phone...
- Access to the SMS Insights service.
- Lower data consumption.
- Control of the data volume used by the app.
- Share photos, emoticons, screenshots, and files of up to 300 MB.
- Use different Skype Bots.
- Chat via text message.
All in all, by downloading this lite version, we'll be able to make the most of all the functions of an app that has reached all sectors, even the business field (remember that there's a Skype for Business). So, now that you know, don't hesitate to create an account even if you've got a low-end phone in order to keep in touch with your friends and family.
