Skype lite, the feature will arrange all SMS in one tab and arrange all the insights in the other tab giving it a proper breakdown of all incoming SMS , flight check in, promotional message , customers care messages and a list of other.

However, before the user have experience  to these feature , the users must have the app already installed in their phone and also make skype Lite a default App on their Android smartphone and then give or allow the App to access the user messages and arrange them in categories.

Till date Skype Lite has been the smallest App that was launched by Microsoft earlier this year, and this feature comes in different categories such as shopping category, online banking messages category, promotion category.

Microsoft said this feature is still a work in progress as users will not be able to delete message from this app feature until they switch back to their previous SMS default that came with their phone and that this App is limited to just Android users.

The App is safe and well secure as Microsoft says all “SMS classification and categorisation happens locally” on the phone itself” and the company does not have access to read any information on the user smartphone.
