Skype, without any doubt, is one of the most used video calling communication service on the planet right now. In recent times, there are a lot of features being added to the platform and one of them is that users can now chat with others without having an account in Skype.
However, this feature is available only on 'Skype for Web'. Essentially what this feature exactly is- it allows users to create a guest chat room and invite other people with their link. Other users can just join by clicking the invitation link and entering their name.
Furthermore, the guest conversation links last only for 24 hours and up to 300 people can be added to a single guest conversation. Users can even make voice and video calls with the group members in conversation. Sounds interesting, right? Here's how you to use that feature right now.
Step 1: Open ‘Skype for Web’
Firstly, you need to open the ‘Skype for Web' website where you can create a chatroom and get the guest link for your chatroom. You can click here to directly head over to the webpage.
Step 2: Click on ‘Start a Conversation’
After opening the URL, you can see two options over there- ‘Start a Conversation' and ‘Download Skype'. Just press on the start a conversation option and proceed further.
Step 3: Enter Your Name
Now, in the next step, you will be asked to enter your name. Just do that and press start a conversation below that. Wait for a few seconds for the website to completely load.
Step 4: Copy and Share Your Invite Link
Your unique chatroom link will be generated and now you need to share that link with your friends or family members to join the conversation. All they need to do is to click the link and enter the name to join in your conversation.
You Can Add Up to 300 Members
Moreover, do make a note that, you can add up to 300 people to this conversation. After adding 300 people into your conversation, the link won't work. And, the created conversation will be valid for 24 hours.
