HTML label - skype call

Hi!
Is thereany way to add extensions with HTML link to launch Skype calls? I would like to add a button(extension) to my project and let people get in touch with just the click of a button. Whether they re on a computer Or mobile, they will get through with a voice call or an instant message. Is it possible to do that?

If you can assume that your visitors have Skype installed then you can use a Skype URL in “Open URL extension”. For example skype:echo123?call will start the Skype application and a call to “echo123” (Skype Echo / Sound Test Service).

Thank you so much! :slight_smile:

@wojtek, does it work the same for whatsapp URL?

According to https://faq.whatsapp.com/en/iphone/23559013 it’s possible to interact with the WhatsApp application (must be installed on the device). For example you can try the following URL: https://wa.me/<whatsappphonenumber>

@wojtek what about normal phone calls?

@martynaberm , do you mean starting a regular call, using the phone’s built-in telephone application, after clicking an anchor? Try: tel:<TELEPHONE-NUMBER> URL and New window disabled.

@wojtek skype call feature is it including skype conference call in my scene ?

The Open URL extension launches Skype as an external application. So, the Skype call takes place in another window, not the web browser window with the scene.

@wojtek I’m testing this “skype:echo123?call” in my scene but it show undefined . May I know what problem for this one ? and how I’m replace my skype number on it ?

Do you have Skype installed on your computer?

To make the trigger start a Skype call to you replace echo123 with your Skype username.
