You can now start a Skype conversation and invite anyone to join on the web

Microsoft Skype team today announced a major feature that allows users to invite anyone to join a Skype chat by sharing a unique link on the web. The best is that anyone can join the chat as a guest from their computer using Skype for Web and enjoy one to one or group instant messaging, voice and video calls. No Skype account or app download required.

You can start, share and join a conversation from Skype for Windows, Skype for Mac, and Skype for Web in the US and UK. Guests can join on Skype for Web. Additionally, if you have a Skype name and Skype downloaded on your mobile, you can join a conversation on Skype for iPhone, iPad and Android. We’ll be rolling out to the rest of the world over the next couple of weeks and bringing the ability to start a conversation and share a link from mobile devices soon. Watch this space for the latest updates.

To give this feature a try, click +New in the latest version of Skype for Windows, Skype for Mac or Skype for Web, then share a unique link with anyone.
