Skype is the number one app in terms of video and audio calls. This app has been specially developed to make it easier for people to jump in calls with anyone they want, be it an online interview or a group conference with their friends. Moreover, there is a Lite version of the app that is designed to lower data consumption and to not take up too much storage space.
This app is equipped with all of Skype’s classic features such as data usage tracking, SMS Support, voice calls and even native phone contacts integration. To make things even better, Skype Lite is entirely free!
The reason why the developer team at Skype decided to create a lightweight version of it is because they wanted people who own lower-end smartphones to also receive access to its services. This app is also great for people who do not benefit from a huge data plan and who need to be careful about how they use their mobile data. Nonetheless, a new Skype Lite APK can be downloaded right now!
Skype Lite – Chat & Video Call 18.104.22.168740 APK Update
The new update is free for download and it brings the app’s build number up to 22.214.171.124740. Since this is update is an APK, it means that interested Skype Lite users will need to manually download and install it themselves. However, this is a small price to pay when considering that APK updates are released weeks ahead before the wide public receives the updated OTA (over the air).
The update measures in at 16.48MB and it is targeted towards Android 7.1 Nougat powered devices. Although, since this app is designed to also function on lower-end smartphones, it requires a minimum of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich in order to function.
