Satya Nadella launches Skype Lite, Skype to support Aadhar identity
As Mukesh Ambani-promoted Reliance Jio is looking to cut down on data prices, technology giants such as Google, Facebook and Microsoft on the other hand are coming up with products that will run even on 2G or unstable connections. The latest product annoucements were made today by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and these products want to bring people from low connectivity areas on the internet. Speaking at the ‘Future Decoded’ event in Mumbai today, Nadella said that Microsoft is all set to engage India in a cloud-based technology system starting with Skype. The Microsoft CEO said that Skype Lite, which was launched today, would be client built for the connectivity speeds in India. He also added that Skype will soon support Aadhar identity, which would engage all B2B and G2C services. The event is claimed to bring together 1,500 business and government decision makers to engage in conversations on how technology can empower people and organisations.
