Skype Webcontrol has been removed from the Microsoft platform. Could 17 be related to the release of Skype for Web.

In this moment 16 it's strongly recommended to use an alternative 15 solution like Facebook Web Messenger for your site.

Yes, now it's 14 possible on the following link Skype Webcontrol

The HTML 13 code to add a call button is:

<span class="skype-button rounded" data-contact-id="skype-user-name"></span>
<script src="https://swc.cdn.skype.com/sdk/v1/sdk.min.js"></script>

Set the "skype-user-name" and 12 voilá... nothing else is required.

<a href="skype:USERNAME?chat">Chat with Skype</a>


<a href="skype:USERNAME?voicemail">Leave a voicemail</a>
