Microsoft has announced the possibility of using Skype without having an account or downloading absolutely nothing.
By now Skype has already become Microsoft’s preferred messaging and calling app; but that does not mean it is exclusive to Windows.
Skype is available on other operating systems like Mac or Linux (where it has been completely redesigned recently). Not only that, but with the web version we can access the app anywhere.
Build Skype without having an account
But the novelty presented today goes further; We are talking about the possibility of using Skype without having a Microsoft account, or any other, as we are.
In this way everyone can use the app without spending the time to create an account, without giving our data. We do not even have to give an email address, which is usually the minimum necessary in other services.
We can realize both voice and video calls and text chats. Of course, the other person doesn’t need an account either.
To use Skype without having an account we just have to go to the official Skype page and click Start a conversation.
In the menu we enter our name and click on Start a conversation again.
The app will open the conversation, and present us with a link. That is what we have to share with the other person with whom we want to talk; as soon as you open the link the conversation will start.
The link will only work for 24 hours, so we have to create a new conversation every day that we want to talk to someone; all this if we do not have an account, of course. If we have a Microsoft account (such as Outlook), we can use it to log in to Skype.
Although we have in mind, this addition can be very useful if we want to create calls quickly with anyone.
