Do you know that, Microsoft has opened up the Skype software on web for everyone who wants to connect with the other and above all, you don't have to create any account, no need of separate download of the software.
By joining Skype as a Guest, you can quickly chat, do a voice call or video call without any hassle. It's going to be perfect if you’re new to Skype and don't have the time to create any account.
Skype is a free audio/video calling chat software to connect with rest of the world for free. The millions of people who uses Skype, use it for only one reason… connect with their loved ones, friend or colleagues to have a chat, audio/video one to one or group calling.
For a new user accessing the Skype features is sometime painful, when you have short time to have a conversation. Now, as a guest user of web based Skype experience, you can create an anonymous conversation link and share with the other to start the conversation.
Do remember that, when using Skype as a Guest, your conversation link will last for 24 hours. During that time, you can invite up to 300 people to that chat and up to 25 people on a voice or video call, all for free.
To start a conversation as a Guest, you’ll need to use a web browser from a computer. Go to Skype.com, tap start a conversation and add your name. You will then be provided with an unique conversation link. You can share that link with your contacts - either individually or as a group. Once they click on the link, they’ll be able to join your conversation immediately without the need to register or even download it.
