If you ever wanted to install Skype on your smartphone but couldn’t because the app requires too much storage space and powerful hardware power, then we have just the perfect alternative! Today we are going to talk about Skype Lite and all the amazing features that it has to offer, but not before covering the latest update and what type of features it introduces.
Just like the original version, Skype Lite comes with lots of cool features that make it easier for people to get in touch with their friends and family members. The best thing about Skype Lite is the fact that it has been optimized to run on lower-end smartphones which means that it doesn’t need too much storage space. With that said, let’s check out the latest update for Skype Lite.
Latest 126.96.36.199289 APK Update
Skype Lite fans should be happy to know that the developers have recently published a new update. The update is available in the form of APK and it features the 188.8.131.52289 version number. On the downside of things, the new update doesn’t add any groundbreaking features and it focuses on improving the app’s software performance instead.
“We have listened closely to your feedback and made updates to make our app even faster and better. Issues related to loading of profile pictures and messaging reliability have been addressed in this build. Please keep the feedback coming! Thank You!” said the app’s developers in the patch notes for the new update.
