As soon as the training is completed, Microsoft will update their profiles for employers to shortlist and hire the skilled workers.

Going further Nadella also talked about Kaizala, a mobile app that Microsoft had launched previous year as a productivity app for teams.

The Skype Lite app is programmed to consume least possible data compared to the regular Skype app.
