Windows 10: Start a video meeting with one click

Microsoft has re-released a feature of Skype called “Meet Now”, in the form of a button that appears in the latest version of the Windows 10 taskbar.

The “Meet Now” button offers faster access to Skype meetings, via the notification area or the status bar, without requiring registration or download. The goal is to compete with the popularity of competitor Zoom.

“In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to easily set up a video call and reach your friends and family in an instant, by clicking the ‘Meet Now’ icon in the taskbar notification area. No registration or download will be necessary, ”says Microsoft.
