In case you haven’t known, Microsoft has enabled all of Skype’s audio and video calling features to be used without an account. Anyone can start a conversation by generating a unique link that can be shared with anyone to enable messaging, voice/video calling, and screen sharing, all free without an account.
To get started, go to Skype.com, tap Start a conversation button right on the homepage.
Enter your name, and you will be provided with a unique conversation link. You can then share the link with your contacts, individually or as a group, via email or your social network.
Once the other parties click on the link, they’ll be able to join your conversation immediately. They can also join as a Guest if they’re using Skype for Web.
Skype without an account works on the web, and up to 300 people can participate in a Skype group chat, with up to 25 people on a voice or video call. When using as a Guest without an account, your conversation will last for 24 hours. If you want to return to the conversation, call a landline, mobile or translate a conversation in real-time with Skype Translator, you’ll need to sign up for a free Skype account.
To start a conversation as a Guest, you’ll need to use a web browser from a computer. Anyone can join the conversation from any Skype client or as a Guest using Skype for Web.
