Microsoft apparently has gotten nervous about Zoom’s growth in the face of the Coronavirus and just unveiled a new and easy video conference tool called Meet Now.

You don’t need to download the app in order to use it, and it seems to be pretty simple.

It doesn’t have all of Zoom’s bells-and-whistles, but I’m not how many of those are really needed anyway.

I’m still a fan of 8X8, but Meet Now might be worth a look.

I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration.
