Start A Conversation in Skype Right Away without an Account

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.
