What is the Skype add-on?

The Skype add-on is a quick way to make Skype calls directly from your web browser to anyone in your inbox from, or to any phone number that appears in the search results in or other Microsoft services, even if you don’t have Skype installed.

The Skype add-on is currently available for Windows, and works on the Internet Explorer (version 8 or above), Firefox, and Chrome web browsers.

If you have Skype installed, you can easily make calls to phone numbers on the web with just one click using the Skype Click to Call plugin.
