Skype has just rolled out a new ‘Meet Now’ feature for its audio and video conferencing service that lets users join cross-platform calls without having to sign up for an account or download the Skype software. Users can generate their free unique link with one click, share it with participants and enjoy unlimited meetings with Skype.

The new Meet Now feature allows users to easily set up a collaboration space and invite both Skype contacts and friends or family who are not on Skype. Participants can then easily join meetings whether they have an account or not.
Starting a meeting is as easy as signing in to Skype and selecting the Meet Now button. You’ll get a call link and a Share invite button to easily invite others. Once you’re ready, set your call to audio or video and select the Start call button. You can also create a meeting directly from the web.
The unique Meet Now link will open your installed Skype app on any device. And if you’re not signed in, you can still join the call or chat as a guest.
If you have the Skype app installed on your device, you can look for the Meet Now option to set up a new meeting right now.
