Like Facebook and Google; Microsoft will also roll out Skype version for lower-end Android smartphones and tablets. The newly introduced version of Skype will take less memory space, fewer storage demands, improved audio-visual quality and increased speed of the device.
The improved version of Skype will run on all the older Android operating system devices from 4.0.3 to 5.1 version. Microsoft, the tech giant says, “This version has improved memory and disk consumption. It will arrive with better audio and video quality. Moreover, performance will be good enough if there is lack of network connection.”
The company declares to roll out the update in coming few weeks. The step looks pretty similar to Android Go which requires less processing power, storage and RAM. Android Go smartphones are designed for people who need to work in poor internet connectivity areas and contains applications that require very fewer specifications.
Microsoft is making consumer’s life easier, especially those who cannot afford to update their smartphones every year or who prefer to buy phones with lower versions of operating systems. This isn’t the first time where tech giants are introducing apps for lower-end devices.
Facebook introduced Messenger Lite for old Android devices that do not provide some of the features of Facebook messenger used for latest operating system devices. Twitter, on the other hand, introduced lite version last September that uses very fewer data and works well in poor internet connection quality.
After gathering the statistical data, Google says, around 42 percent of Android devices on Google Play run on lower versions of an operating system such as Android 4 or 5. Microsoft opts to think for lower-end devices otherwise it will lose a huge mass of audiences that totally rely on and afford lower operating system devices.
This version is equally important in places where people cannot afford taking costlier smartphones and in case they are not available.
