The only thing the user has to do is go to this link and click on “Create a new meeting”. That link is free, no need to login, no need to have an account to participate in your call, and you have all the main features of Skype.
You can record the call, blur the background before you enter, and screen sharing. The only thing you need is a compatible browser, which so far are only the Microsoft Edge, and Chrome. If you want support for Firefox you can leave your vote in this form to give a push to Microsoft for that side.
