Skype Web Control is a fast way for website visitors to communicate directly with a company representative in real-time right on the businesses website. It appears as a chat box on their website and is extremely fast and simple. The website owner decides who is on the other end of the chat - it could be the owner themselves, someone else from their business, or even a bot that provides intelligent responses to questions. Get Skype Web control for your site.
Just click on the chat icon and start typing!

Once you set up your history options, your settings will sync and persist across any other device.
Select the sign in button before you start chatting. The person or bot you're chatting with will be automatically added to your contacts.
