How to Create a Skype Link

It is possible to make a clickable link in your email, blog or other online media to make it easy for someone to connect with you on Skype?
Yes, this is possible. This avoids the hassle of having to explain your username and hope that they search for and find it it correctly.

Instead of providing a standard HTTP link as a URL <a href=””>Daft Logic</a>
You can make a Skype URL <a href=”skype:username”>Find Me on Skype!</a> 

Additional Parameters

You can also add a parameter to the URL to perform an action:

  • Call: skype:username?call
  • Add: skype:username?add
  • Chat: skype:username?chat
  • View profile:skype:username?userinfo
  • Leave a voicemail: skype:username?voicemail
  • Send file: skype:username?sendfile
  • Group Chat skype:username1;username2?chat
  • Group Conversation skype:username1;username2?call
