Much of the video calling went to Zoom, not Skype, a Microsoft product that had been in the center of online video and voice chats long before smartphones became popular.
This is mostly due to the fact that Zoom made sharing essential meetings and programs quite easy, with some security and privacy compromises, but Skype is finally ready to respond with “Meet Now”.
With Meet Now, hosts can create a free meeting and share it with just three clicks, depending on the company, even the host doesn’t need Skype installed, it can.
Start the process from their website, then invite people using either a simple link or the share button.
If the person you invite installs Skype, the app will open directly to the call, and if not, the web client that works in Chrome or Edge will open.
Zoom has already made some changes and pledged more to address its issues, and it will be clear if this setting helps Skype restore any users who are already used to using rival software in their meetings.
