What are Skype buttons and Skype URI links, and how do I use them?

Skype buttons and Skype URI links  are great ways for people to call you using Skype by clicking a button or a link displayed in your application or on your website.

Skype buttons

You can display Skype buttons on your website, blog or even in your application to let other people contact you more easily. Your friends only have to click the button on your page or email, and if they have Skype, they can call you.

The Skype button

To get a Skype button:

  1. Go to the Skype buttons page.
  2. In the Let's get started... section, enter the required information and select the preferred settings to personalize your Skype button. This will generate a specific code.
  3. Copy and paste the generated code into your website´s code or application.

Skype URI links

Adding Skype URI links to your application or website allows people to call you on Skype, by simply clicking the links. Skype URI links work in the same way as a Skype button.

To learn more, visit the Skype URI pages on Skype Developer.
