>What is Meet Now and how do I use it in Skype? (Skype support)

“All of Skype’s usual meeting features will work on Meet Now calls, including the ability to share your screen, record a call, turn on the background blur feature and use the chat function.

  1. “Go to >Skype’s new Meet Now landing page.
  2. Click Create a free meeting.
  3. A box will pop up with a unique link, and the ability to share it by copy and pasting, or through Outlook or Gmail.
  4. Start your call from that same box by clicking Start call.

“This works like other Skype calls, in that you won’t be able to see anything until the other person logs in. When the call opens, you’ll be asked to join as a guest, or to sign into your Skype account if you have one.

“If you click join as a guest, you’ll be asked to enter your name, and hit join. You’ll be taken to a page with the other members you invited, where you can send messages through chat, or start the call.

“Skype will prompt you for permission to use your camera and microphone. If you sign into your Skype account, you’ll see the chat box and the ability to start the call through the Skype app.
