How to Add or Remove Meet Now icon on Taskbar in Windows 10

Earlier this year Microsoft introduced Meet Now in Skype. Meet Now makes it easy to connect with anyone in as little as two clicks for free and each call can last up to 24 hours.

Microsoft extended this capability starting in Windows 10 build 20221 by bringing Meet Now right to the taskbar. You can now easily set up a video call and reach friends and family in an instant by clicking on the Meet Now icon in the notification area (system tray) of the taskbar in Windows 10. No sign ups or downloads needed.

Meet Now will open your installed Skype app on any device. Even if you are not signed in, you can join the call or chat as a guest. If you do not have Skype installed on your computer, it will open Skype for you on the web. Supported browsers for Meet Now are Microsoft Edge and the latest version of Google Chrome.

Meet Now in the Windows 10 Taskbar is now available to all starting with Windows 10 build 20231.

This tutorial will show you how to add, remove, hide, or show the Meet Now icon on the taskbar notification area for your account in Windows 10.
