Using Skype for a quick chat or video call just got a whole lot easier. Microsoft has announced that anyone can now use Skype right away as a guest user without registering an account or even downloading the Skype application itself. The purpose of the move is to allow anyone to fire up a quick chat, even if one of the participants doesn't have time to sign up for an account.
Getting started with a guest conversation is pretty easy, overall. You simply need to head to Skype.com, click "Start a conversation" and then enter your name. From there, you'll be given a unique link that you can share with others to easily join your conversation. From there, you can chat over messaging, voice chat or video calls. You can even share files and show others what you're doing by screen-sharing.
If you'd like to try out guest conversations, you can head to the Skype on the web to give it a shot now. Also be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!
