Skype Gets Icon on Windows Taskbar

Because of the pandemic, tech software companies are searching for the best ways to keep communities safe by enhancing features used most at home.

Only released for testing for now, Microsoft and Skype are working together to bring a “Meet Now” button to the Windows 10 taskbar. This will allow users to video call with just a couple clicks, making remote chatting as simplistic as possible.

According to Gadgets 360, “The new development comes over six months after the Redmond company introduced the Meet Now feature on Skype to let people start a virtual group conversation without requiring any app or sign up. Emerging players including Zoom have seen a significant increase in their adoption during the pandemic. However, Skype hasn’t received any major growth. Microsoft’s latest move is, thus, a strategy to boost Skype usage.”

This feature will also be free and won’t require registration or downloading anything.

It is unsure when this feature will become available, but if the testing is successful, it should come out in a near future update. If you’re in the Windows Insiders Program, you can get involved in the beta testing of this handy feature.
