Skype introduced Meet Now, a new web-app that allows users to make video calls without necessarily having an account. It is a new web service, therefore, which allows you to avoid registering on the popular platform. In this way, Zoom, the video conferencing application that has ended up in the spotlight for privacy reasons after the great success achieved in this period of emergency by Coronavirus, approaches.

In this context, Skype therefore tries to make the use of its platform much easier and faster. Just create a link - Hangouts style - to start the video call. Our colleagues and friends will be able to join the call by simply clicking on the address we will share, without the need to register an account or - if they already have one - to enter their login credentials.



Introducing a simple, hassle-free way to connect with the important people in your life on #Skype, no sign-ups or downloads required. Learn about Meet Now: https://t.co/yOw6oBlFxx

In the event that the mobile application is installed on the device used for the video call, the system will automatically open the app and also in this case there will be no need to log in. Otherwise, the web client will be opened without any kind of download. Meet Now is currently supported on Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. The official Skype page points out that the features do not change. They are the same as we already know: call recording, background blurring and screen sharing to share material with colleagues.

In short, using Skype with Meet Now will be enough to have a good Internet connection and the browser that supports it (Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome).


P30 Pro, the first with a periscope camera, is available for purchase on Amazon at less than 560 euros. .
