The candidates will also receive job options according to their skills, according to a report. Microsoft is using LinkedIN Lite in the Sangam app to power job searches. "Skype Lite will come in to help people connect in poor network areas and it is going to come with Aadhaar capabilities", Nadella said. Today at an event here in Mumbai, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft has announced the launch of a lite version of Skype.

Satya Nadella said his company's mission is to empower every person, every organisation on the planet to help them achieve more. But Skype Lite won't only be your go-to for video calls - rather, the service will also allow for SMS messages, chats, and various Skype bots.

One of the biggest reveals in Nadella's address was the launch of the Skype Lite app that has been designed specially for India. Thanks to chatbots, Skype Lite is not only a communications tool, but also a connected service that can keep you notified about local news, weather, sports results, and anything else you might be interested in.

Skype Lite is available in Gujarati, Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu and has been borne of Microsoft's close work with users in India.

What's more, Microsoft has also added Aadhaar integration, which will make it easier for identification, especially when taking interviews during a video call. The feature allows third party software vendors to integrate their artificial intelligence apps that can respond to queries such as What's the temperature right now to What's the top news for the day. When the users are on a faster connection or on a Wi-Fi network, the app will automatically switch to HD calls.

Nadella also announced that countrys largest lender SBI has chose to move to the Cloud and will be adopting its Office 365 solution. LinkedIn Placements is an app for college graduates. She can also sign up for the popular LinkedIn professional networking site in the process.

But the overall focus of Nadella's keynote was Microsoft's cloud services and how it is being used across the public and private sector in India. Microsoft stated that this could help Government agencies.

"We are also working with the India Stack in a very strategic way".

Kaizala is available on all leading mobile platforms. The Government of Andhra Pradesh now plans to replicate it across many departments to implement real-time governance across the state. "What we had seen was that email was often the primary means of collaboration and coordination even in government organisations", said Nadella, "and people are using consumer Internet services to get government or business work done".
