Skype rolls out “Meet Now” calls that don’t require the app installation or a sign-up


The coronavirus pandemic has forced everyone to spend their lives at home for work as well. This has led to an increase in video calls more than ever. Microsoft has come up with some improvements in its Skype video call service to meet the needs and to make it as easy as possible.

Starting from today, users are not required to either install the Skype app or sign up for an account to join a cross-platform video conference. Microsoft’s Skype has been there for online voice and video chats even before the smartphones came. Although Zoom has dominated the video calling conversation ever since the pandemic outbreak. However, there have been some security and privacy issues associated with Zoom.

According to the company, “Meet Now” helps the host to create and share free meetings with just a few clicks. The host as well doesn’t need to have the Skype app and can start the process from the website and invite people via a simple link or share button. If the person connected has the Skype app installed then the app opens the call directly, or else it opens the web client that works in Edge or Chrome. A free Skype meeting can be created from any device on the new Skype page.

We have to see if this feature will help Skype get their users back who have become used to other video calling apps.
