A while back Skype launched a low weight app for the Indian market. The Skype lite app didn’t have group calling feature. Now prior to Diwali Skype is enabling group calling feature for Skype lite users all around the country.
Most of the Indian’s don’t have a good internet connection. As a result, a lot of companies are introducing lite apps for this kind of market. Though the current situation is improving drastically in India. You can use the group calling feature on the Skype Lite app for free. From anywhere in the country.
Skye also introduced a new A.I based chatbot, named “Ruuh”. “Ruuh” is now available for every Skype app. Users can send personalized cards with the help of Ruuh. They also added some new Diwali themed stickers.
The Skype Lite app has been successful in the Indian market. It also includes Gujarati, Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu language for Indian users.
