Microsoft has reported that you may not require having a Microsoft or Skype account to use Skype. From now onwards, you’ll be able to use Skype without signing in into it. However, it only works if you are on Skype.com and using Skype for the web. After visiting the website, you’ll be able to start the conversation by tapping on “start conversation” and add your name. Later without any delay, you’ll get a unique generated link, which you must share with other people to initiate the conversation. As soon as, they click on the link, you’ll be able to perform Skype chat with them.
It doesn’t mean that only those who have Skype account can join the conversation with you. Additionally, the people who don’t have an account on Skype also can join as a guest and talk with you. This new move from Microsoft allows everyone to experience the entire features of Skype such as one to one chats, group conservation, voice and high-quality video calls, screen sharing and so on for free of cost. However, the free service allows you invite more than 300 people to chat, whereas the voice and video calls restricted to 25 individuals at the same time.
The only downside of the new guest feature is that your conversations will be available only for 24 hours. In this Technology Era, every company is experimenting and bringing new products daily to maintain their place in the market. Considering it, the Microsoft has introduced this new feature, so that the new users who use the Skype as a guest will get to know about it. And later, sign up for Skype to use its complete features without any restriction not only on Skype for the web, but also on other platforms such as Android, iOS, and Windows.
