Skype adds link sharing feature to help users invite anyone to chat online
Microsoft wants to make it easy for anyone to chat with anyone else via Skype, even if a person doesn't have an account for the messaging and VoIP service. The company is rolling out a new feature that will allow Skype users to invite anyone else to join a chat by sharing a link via email, social networking apps and more.
This new feature is available first in the US and UK via Skype for Windows and Mac, along with Skype for Web, and will roll out to the rest of the world in the next couple of weeks. The ability to invite others to a chat via a shared link will be added to Skype mobile clients in the near future.
