Once you're ready, set your call to audio or video and select the Start call button. You can also create a meeting directly from the web.

Our unique Meet Now link will open your installed Skype app on any device. Even if you're not signed in, you can join the call or chat as a guest.

What's the difference between Meet Now and Group Chats?
  • Meet Now chats can be quickly set up and shared with others in two easy steps. However, all new Meet Now chats will initially have the same title and profile picture. Tap or click on the Chat Header in your meeting and select the Edit button to rename it and add a profile picture.
  • Group Chats are customized from the start since a group name is required and has you select participants first before creating it.
