Govt to soon release Covid-19 tracing for feature phones

Apr 30, 2020 15:42 IST

IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has announced the development of a Covid-19 contact-tracing service for feature phones that still use 2G network and don’t have Bluetooth or GPS connectivity. The Centre has already released ‘Aarogya Setu’ app for iOS and Android to track the pandemic spread. According to market research company IDC, India has around 450 million smartphone users as compared to 550 million feature phone users.
