HTML label - skype call

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 it’s possible to interact with the WhatsApp application (must be installed on the device). For example you can try the following URL:<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.
