Connecting a Slack Channel to a Skype Conversation

by Eric Karjaluoto

Many use Slack or Skype; but, there’s no interoperability between these services. Those who’ve tried know just how impossible it is to link these disconnected conversations—until now!

Sameroom allows Slack teams and Skype teams to easily interact—without anyone needing to change chat services. Want to know how? I’ll walk you through the process of linking a Slack channel to a conversation on Skype.

  • Step 1: Add your Skype and Slack accounts to Accounts
  • Step 2: Open a Tube between your Slack channel on Side A and Skype group * on Side B **

*   If you don’t see your Skype group listed, read this FAQ item.
** Tubes are commutative: A↔B is the same as B↔A.

Once the Tube is live, all messages and files posted in a Slack channel will be copied to a conversation (group or contact) in Skype, and vice versa.

To manage this Tube, use the Manage Dashboard. To fine-tune how your messages appear on either end of the Tube, or to make the Tube one-directional, configure posting options.
