Skype with non-Skype users

Invite non-Skype users to join your Skype meeting. They don’t need to have Skype

Microsoft recently released a new feature to Skype called, `Meet Now’. This new Meet Now feature allows you to Skype with non-Skype users. You invite them from Skype, but they don’t need to have Skype themselves – they just use their browser.

This will come in handy when you need to connect with someone who doesn’t even know what Skype is!

How to Skype with people who don’t have Skype

  • Make sure you are using the latest version of Skype.
  • Within Skype, press Meet Now.
  • Copy the link to your meeting (and add other users if necessary).
  • Share your invite link (via Skype or email) to someone who does or doesn’t use Skype.
  • Start the call, and wait for the other person (or people) to join the meeting via their web browser.

Meet Now works in supported web browsers. At the time of testing this for this page, the Edge and Chrome browsers worked fine.

Summary

I use Skype to teach English and keep in touch with family. For me, Meet Now should make it easier to connect with those people who are less techie.
