Microsoft Edge has since been receiving a lot of backlash from browser users who claim the company continues to add what many consider “bloat” in its web browser, it appears that the firm is hell-bent on continuing down this route. Microsoft Edge now appears to be getting a Skype Meet Now panel.

Many people believe its web browser to be “bloated,” but it appears that the firm is hell-bent on continuing down this route. Microsoft Edge now appears to be getting a Skype Meet Now panel.

Skype Meet Now is now available in Microsoft Edge, complete with an Edge logo and a pondering face emoji.
The integration was discovered by u/Leopeva64-2, an observant Reddit user who noticed the change in the current Edge Canary build.

in essence, a new toggle in the Appearance option adds a Skype Meet Now button to the Edge omnibar. Clicking it in the omnibar brings up a Skype Meet Now window in Microsoft Edge. The image above shows a portion of this.

Although the toggle is off by default, Microsoft’s latest step is expected to rekindle disputes about why something like this is built directly into the browser rather than offered as an extra that users may freely download. Indeed, the change raises questions about what Microsoft’s preferred online communication tool is, given that Teams includes a personal version that competes with the consumer version of Skype as well.

Overall, it is unknown when or if this integration will be released to the stable release channel. Edge Canary is updated nightly, so we start to see features arrive there more frequently before they make their way to Dev, Beta, and finally Stable. Furthermore, while this feature is being released as part of Microsoft’s “managed rollout” plan, not everyone will have it in their Edge build just yet.
