In a time when remote working and telecommuting is the way to go, video conferencing apps and technology is becoming popular. The coronavirus pandemic is making it difficult to make it to the mandatory boardroom meetings, and it is now a must to work from wherever you can.

To the effect, Microsoft has decided to add new features to its video calling service, Skype. You can now join cross-platform video conferences without the need for an account, or without even having to download any software. The company has also revamped the interface to let you start calls with just a single click.

In such a time, you would surely wish to try out this feature for yourself. Here is a brief guide to how you can use the Skype meet now feature.
