And we are left with the last one, with Skype. And that is if we recently saw as Skype was updated and allowed to send attachments directly from the file Explorer, you now get another important function, in this case for facilitate calls to contacts.
“Meet Now” on Skype
“Meet Now” is the new tool that comes to Skype. A functionality that it facilitates the realization of video calls. With “Meet Now” hosts can create and share a free meeting in few steps and with the advantage of not having to have Skype installed on the computer.

Once you receive the invitation, the person will see as if you accept, you open the video call in Skype if any, or in his absence, it opens the web client, both in Chrome as in Edge.
If accessed from Skype, to start your meeting, simply press the button “Meet Now” to get a link to call and a button “Sharing invitation” to invite easily to others.

It is a significant improvement in Skype when trying to attract users. Skype is a utility with much more experience behind their backs that alternative and more modern such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or Zoom, but the passage of time and which in part, Microsoft has not evolved perhaps all that it should, has made other rivals to take advantage.
