#Skype – #MeetNow, Host a video meeting with no sign ups or downloads

Buy Me A Coffee


Today’s video conference world seems to be split between personal and business Apps. In the business side, I’m a fan an avid user of Microsoft Teams, no suprises here.

However the personal side has more options, I’ve seen a lot of people using WhatsApp, Instagram and the super uber popular Zoom. Disclaimer here: Zooms seems to be the worst in terms of security. But, it also looks like a campaign to kill the new and shinny one in the market.

And what about Skype? I’ve been a big fan of Skype, however in the past 5 years it slowly went into the darkness. You may want to blame Microsoft, however, I think that this is mostly because the sum of lack of usability, not being cool, and more factors.

One feature that I really like from Skype is: Meet Now.

It’s easy – simply create a meeting link, share the link with participants and join the call. No sign ups required. If you don’t have Skype installed, we will open Skype for you on the Web. Invite up to 50 people to your call and enjoy unlimited free meetings on Skype.

– No sign ups
– No downloads
– No time limits

On the go or just didn’t have time to prepare for your video meeting, simply turn on the background blur feature and worry less.

As I said, super cool !
