At the end of the year Microsoft launched a Meet Nowan update for Skype, one more possibility in an attempt to make its utility for messaging and calls follow appealing in front of the competition that represent options such as WhatsApp, Zoom, or Messenger. And few days ago we saw how Meet Now was a step to the front to allow video calls with Skype in a few clicks and do it although we don’t have the app installed.
But do not forget that Microsoft already had an implementation as is GroupMea chat client and messaging bought in their day that has lost prominence in favour of Skype, and who now, with the heyday of this type of tools, again take the leading role. So much so that Microsoft has once again updated GroupMe with a new feature.
With the same base as Meet Now
Microsoft has released an update for GroupMe on Android that allows users to easily create a group call on Skype. An add-on that provides access to Skype within the application.
In the upper right area of the chat users can click on the symbol of Skype, at which point the app asks if we want to create a group call on Skype with all the users that are in the room.
When we accept, it generates a link that is posted in the chat, link that, when clicked, it shall open Skype and to start the group call to which all can join with just a touch. A function with the same base concept to Meet Now Skype.
And is that if with Meet Now Skype is looking for to facilitate the users to be able to establish a contact with friends, family or work colleagues, GroupMe looking for something similar and uses Skype as a means to achieve this.
For now this improvement is only available in the GroupMe for Android and it remains to be seen if it will also come to the versions of GroupMe that you can download for Windows 10 and iOS.
