How to Access Skype From Your Browser

Being able to communicate with people in different ways has brought real flexibility to how we work. One of the tools that has achieved this is Skype for Business.

The application allows the user to call, video conference and instant message their contacts. You can even hold meetings with people all over the country or even the world through a Skype Meeting. We love using the app for holding webinars for our clients to show them how to get the best out of our products and services.

There is an assumption though that if you haven’t got Skype you won’t be able to contact someone that does and vice versa. This isn’t the case. If you have been invited to a Skype Meeting and don’t have access to the application through Office 365, or if you’re inviting someone else and you know they don’t have it, this is not a problem because the application is easily accessible to guests through the browser. Our steps below show just how easy it is to access a Skype meeting without having it installed on your PC.

1. Click the link you receive inviting you to the meeting

Meeting invitations are usually sent via email. When it is time for your meeting just click on the link and it should take you to your preferred browser.

2. Join the Skype Web App

The browser page you are taken to should look something like the image below. Click ‘Join using the Skype for Business Web App instead’ link and you will be taken to your meeting.

3. Enjoy your meeting

Your contacts don’t need to worry about how you haven’t got Office 365 yet, they know that you can easily access it from your browser.

If you’re interested in using Office 365 and Skype for Business to collaborate, or you’re just in need of general IT Support, then please get in contact with ACUTEC today.
