Due to the confinement caused by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, videoconferencing services are experiencing a historic boom, as revealed by one of the great experts of the sector. In this light, Microsoft has introduced a new function to its video conferencing service called Skype Meet Now.

And if we could experience such a surge in videoconferencing within a couple of weeks ago, imagine how things are going now. Hence, despite the existing offer, Skype Meet Now comes at an ideal time for expansion.

First, because Skype is already one of the best tools in this segment; Second, because Skype Meet Now focuses on the feature that has made Zoom a success in recent times, a service used mainly by companies for business meetings, but due to the ‘storm’ that we went through, it has become extended to other areas.

Skype Meet Now: How It Works

Skype Meet Now allows video conferencing without the need to register anywhere, or download and install any application.


How To Create A Meeting In Skype

  1. Simply enter the Skype Meet Now website and with one click
  2. Then, generate a link to share with those who want to start a conversation.
