Start Skype calls from Slack, with new integration

Microsoft has announced a preview of Skype integration for Slack to let teams quickly start a video of voice chat.

Once the Skype integration has been configured, anyone on the Slack team can start a Skype call from a computer. Just type “/skype” into the chat and when the call is set up, a join link will appear.


Whether your team members use Slack on the web, Windows, Mac, iOS or Android, user will receive a Slack notification that a Skype call has started.  Whenever you want to start a new call, just type “/skype” into the chat again which will set up a new call for others to join.

To join a Skype call, all you need on the desktop is a web browser, or you can get the Skype mobile apps to join from your smartphone. That's mean the link will either open up the chat service in your web browser or in the native Skype app.
