Skype reminds everyone it still exists with Zoom-like video chat option

In the aughts and early 2010s, Skype dominated the world of video calling. But amid the recent boom in FaceTimes, HouseParties, and Zooms thanks to coronavirus-necessitated social distancing, it’s been nowhere.

On Friday, Skype kindly reminded the world of its existence with a tweet. It turns out that Skype actually has a video chat Zoom-like functionality called Meet Now that doesn’t require having a Skype account or the app — who knew!

It tweeted about the feature with a link to the service and a six second looping video that proves its existence.

Introducing a simple, hassle-free way to connect with the important people in your life on #Skype, no sign-ups or downloads required. Learn about Meet Now: https://t.co/yOw6oBlFxx
