Skype make is easy to chat with shareable links, no a/c needed

Having a Skype 3-way has never been so easy…..

Skype have just rolled out an update that makes it very easy to video chat or message with your friends even if they don’t have a Skype account. It is now possible to share a URL that once clicked by the other user will insert them into a live chat with you.

What’s more you can even send the URL to multiple people and have a video conferences, logged out users or non account holders will have full access to the web version and chat features. Microsoft’s hope here is that over time those without an account will just create one for ease.


Link URLs can be sent via email, Facebook or any other service so it puts Skype a unique substation where anyone and everyone can use it, nicely done Microsoft. The new feature is available today in the UK and the US but I can confirm that at least in the Windows app it is also available in Ireland too, just not on mobile yet.
