Skype Lite

Lightweight Skype for emerging markets

It blows my mind why "light" apps need to be "designed for India." Why can't the rest of us have access to light and fast app that just work? That language from Skype is almost insulting, IMO. What do you guys think?

@kirillzubovsky I agree. They should understand it should be for everyone who doesn't have let's say much memory on phone and want to have faster apps. That really sucks
Is this the version of Skype made with React Native?

@francorreasosa The same questions I was asking myself.
There's this significant feature that's in the pipeline. Skype to feature Aadhaar based identity authentication in India 🇮🇳 http://factordaily.com/news/skyp...
@binoyxj Didn't realize this all these days. This is exciting now!
Facebook launched a "Lite" version of its app years ago for those with access to low bandwidth areas, now Skype's launching their own a week after Amazon's Skype competitor launched. Side note: See the last screenshot in the Google Play store. TIL Skype has bots. 🤔
@rrhoover Also YouTube Go (a lite version of YouTube) is available for Android. https://www.producthunt.com/post... (Not sure why this wasn't featured on ProductHunt) Cc: @bentossell
@adithya as my comment on the post said, stated it was unreleased and no official launch post
@bentossell Oh! was that the reason? - the blog post about this came up way back Sep'16 https://youtube.googleblog.com/2... (At that point the app wasn't available on the Play Store at all)
A lot of what Microsoft makes seems the opposite of Lite, so what this really should be called it Skype Done Right
