Microsoft's Skype did something very smart today, it made it possible to use Skype in guest mode and with that eliminated a choke spot for using it as a business tool. Often meetings happen spontaneously, someone emails a request to talk about a potential deal and then the teleconference platform needs to be decided on. This decision is often made based on the communications tool that both are registered to use.
Now anyone can use Skype without having to go through a registration or download process, making it much easier for business professionals to use for their deal making.
"By joining Skype as a Guest, you can quickly chat, voice or video call without any hassle," noted the Skype Team in their announcement. "Perfect if you’re new to Skype and want to quickly chat with someone, anywhere in the world, for free."
