Skype is going hassle-free.
Gone are the days of scheduling a Skype call and then scrambling to remember your password at the last minute.
On Monday, Nov. 14, Skype announced that users of the service can join Skype for Web as a “guest” and chat, voice call, or video call without needing a Skype account or paying a cent.
According to Skype’s video announcement, to use the feature all you have to do is visit Skype.com, click “start a conversation,” and add your name. Then, take the unique conversation link provided to you and share it with whomever you want to chat with. The other people in the conversation can also join as guests through Skype for Web.
The feature is pretty extensive, too. Users can share screens and files through chats, and invite up to 300 people to chat, or up to 25 people on a voice or video call.
While you can use the service without an account, you’ll need an account if you want to revisit the conversation. The conversation links only last 24 hours, and you can’t call a landline, mobile phone, or use Skype’s real-time translator without an account.
