Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is App for Skype™?

    App for Skype™ is the easiest way to open and use Skype web from your desktop machine (PC, MAC or Linux). Clicking on the toolbar button, renders Skype web UI in a standalone window. Moreover, the window is re-sizable to your desired choice. Note, to start using this App, you need to have a skype account. Simply click on the toolbar button to open Skype in a simple popup window. Once the UI is closed all background activities are halted. Please note that, this addon does not have any settings or options to adjust.

  • Why App for Skype™ is a lite Addon?

    App for Skype™ is designed to operate similar to Google Chrome Apps. In other words, it opens in a simple and stand-alone popup window (as opposed to the toolbar-popup or sidebar), and once closed, completely clears-off and will not have any further background activities. Having this behavior, it is considered a very lite Addon and does not add any additional burden to your browser.

  • Can I make calls with this app?

    Yes, but you need to install a separate plug-in to make the call. Simply click on the call button within the UI (top right corner) and follow the instructions on the screen to setup the call. Please note that the separate call plug-in is made by Microsoft/Skype corp and has nothing to do with this app.

  • When I resize the popup window, can I save it to the memory for next time usage?

    Yes, once you resize the window it will store the new size to the memory. Next time when you open the UI it will open in a new window.

  • Does this addon provide any badge icon text?

    No, this addon does not have notifications. It is just designed to gain you an easy access to your skype page.

  • Can I have more than one detached panel (with Skype UI rendered in)?

    No, you can only have one detached window. Every time you click on the toolbar button, the window will be focused, if it is already open. If not, it opens a new window.

  • When I click on the toolbar button, can I make the popup to attach to the toolbar?

    No, currently there is no way to attach the popup to the toolbar (mini UI). In fact, this extension is designed to operate similar to chrome apps which opens a standalone and detached panel.

  • Is App for Skype™ the same as my skype web page?

    Yes, App for Skype™ renders exactly your skype page. In other words, it just opens your skype page in a standalone and simple UI.
