In the spring of this year and on the occasion of the telework boom, we learned about one of the new features that Microsoft was about to launch in an application like Skype. In order to facilitate meetings Meet Now was coming. That’s the name of a tool that allows you to access a meeting or video meeting with a single click.
Logical, at a time when applications to take advantage of teleworking have become very important and when there are more actors on the scene. Since then Meet Now has come to be integrated into Windows 10 and the next step is do it also in Outlook for iOS.
Meetings for work or leisure in one click
Microsoft Outlook for iOS is close to receive an upgrade like Meet Now (in Spanish would be to meet now). With this added button, you just have to click on it to start an instant meeting in Microsoft Teams.
In addition, and thanks to information from Stephan Frühwirth (Microsoft’s digital work specialist) on LinkedIn, we have learned that on terminals with iOS 14 it will also be possible access Meet Now via a shortcut that will appear in the widget of Outlook and avoid the tedious task of setting up a video call by creating a link in your web browser or with the Teams desktop client.
News in addition to the indications of compatibility with other services for Outlook for iOS video calls. Tero Alhonen posted on his Twitter account the following text: “Now you’ll see a Join button on common online meeting provider events like Zoom, WebEx, BlueJeans and GoToMeeting”.
For those of you who don’t know Meet Now, it’s a feature that allows the user to contact another person even if she is not a user of the Microsoft service. You can set up a video call with Skype and share the link with other users even if they are not using the application.
Meet Now will first arrive at the Windows Outlook clienthoping that it can be tested from December. The Meet Now-compatible version of Outlook for iOS should arrive in the next few weeks.
