Skype As an Alternative to Zoom

Bert Kimura (4/3/20 10:45AM HST) shared an article by Michael Potuck1 on his Facebook page. Potuck reports that, “starting today, [Skype] users don’t need to sign up for an account or download software to join cross-platform video conferences. There’s also a simpler interface that allows users to start a video call in just one click. Skype announced the changes on Twitter and on a new landing page today:

Easy video meetings with no sign ups or download. Generate your free unique link with one click, share it with participants and enjoy unlimited meetings with Skype. Full set of features at your disposal. Your meeting link does not expire and can be used anytime.

You can instantly create a free Skype meeting from any device on the new Skype page here.”

Current Skype users should look for the “Meet Now” option.
