Connecting to Skype from Other Chat Apps and Teams

By @abs

If you live in Skype, nobody can fault you. Everyone has a Skype account, you can do 1-1 and group chat, voice, video, and screensharing, on desktop and mobile. Skype is the productivity tool for the modern internet professional.

Unfortunately, there are numerous forces out there, luring people away from Skype and into other communication platforms, none of which can interoperate with Skype. These days, you may easily find yourself trying to do business with a team on "slack", "hip chat", or even "fleep".

Fear not! We can help you deal with these folks. With Sameroom, you can share your Skype groups with teams on individuals on other platforms. We support Google Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, Slack, HipChat, Fleep, Gitter, Flowdock, Telegram, IRC, and Campfire.

Instructions

Make sure you've got your Skype group ready (create one, if not). Then, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Add your Skype account to Sameroom;
  • Step 2: Create a Portal to your Skype group.
  • Step 3: Email the Portal URL to your collaborators. Tell them to create a channel or room in their chat platform and then click on the URL.

Once they connect, you'll see the resulting Sameroom Tube on your Manage dashboard. You can configure how your messages appear on either side of the Tube with posting options.

If you have any questions about this functionality, please get in touch with us.
