Microsoft has recently released another test build of the Windows 10 operating system. One of the innovations is the built-in feature of video conferencing Meet Now, which the test participants have already managed to call the “Zoom killer”.
The Meet Now function allows you to start a video call by creating a link using a special button in the taskbar in the notification area. At the same time, accounts in any videoconferencing services are not mandatory for either the user or the interlocutor. To participate in a conference, a link or access code is sufficient.
The call can be received either through the Skype desktop client or the Skype web application in the Edge browser. Thus, even without an account, a user can access features of the Skype client, such as recording a call or blurring the background.
It is assumed that Meet Now will become especially popular among corporate users who cannot use Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp or Facetime video calls at work.
At the moment, the feature is in the stage of closed testing and it is not clear when it will be available to ordinary users.
