To use the full version of Skype, you need an account and the right software or web browser. But if you don’t have these items, you can still easily create a virtual meeting using Skype Meet Now.
With Skype Meet Now, you can set up your meeting by generating and sharing a link with other attendees. The other participants don’t need a Skype account to join the meeting and Skype Meet Now offers several features included in the full version.
On a computer, you can run Skype directly from the web but on a mobile phone you will need to download the app before that can be possible.
After you launch Meet Now, a link will be generated which you can share to other participants of the meeting and they can all join using their mobile phone, a personal computer, or through a program.
With Skype Meet Now, you can view a list of participants with recent chats, turn the camera and microphone on and off, record your calls. You can also chat and share files on Skype.
If you have the Skype app on your phone, you can start your meeting using any app but if you don’t you will have to run it through Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge as only these two browsers supports Skype for Web.
