Coronavirus outbreak has served as a nightmare to whole of the tech industry except few areas. In the time of lockdown and social distancing, people are trying to be in touch with the video conferencing apps. This has made apps like Zoom and Houseparty much popular in just few months. While these apps enjoyed their share, Skype missed the opportunity. But it seems that Skype is back now with this new Meet Now feature which can regain its lost ground. Let’s have a look at this feature.

Before introduction of this feature, only Skype users who had the Skype app installed on their devices were able to connect in a video conference.

This service is totally free. This also allows users to access all Skype features such as blurring the background during video call, recording and saving the call, screen sharing feature and all other Skype features. Not having the app doesn’t compromise any of the video call features. Users will get the same Skype experience without needing to install the app
