Meet Now is built right into the OS
Microsoft has recently released another test build of the Windows 10 operating system. One of the innovations is the built-in Meet Now video conferencing function, which the test participants have already called the “Zoom killer”.

Meet Now lets you start a video call by creating a link using a dedicated taskbar button in the notification area. At the same time, accounts in any video conferencing services are not required either for the user himself or for the interlocutor. A link or access code is enough to participate in the conference.
The call can be answered either through the Skype desktop client or through the Skype web app in the Edge browser. Thus, even without an account, the user has access to the functions of the Skype client, such as recording a call or blurring the background.
Meet Now is expected to become especially popular among corporate users who cannot use Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or Facetime video calls at work.
The feature is currently in closed testing and it is unclear when it will become available to regular users.
