The Skype Extension update puts Skype inside your favorite tools

At Skype, we’re constantly working to develop new ways to help you make connections with friends, family and coworkers easy and natural.

With this in mind, we are expanding our Skype extension for Google Chrome to enable Skype integration across more of the online tools you use every day, including calendars, email, and even social media. With the latest update of the Skype extension for Chrome, you can create and insert Skype call links with just one click or tap, from right within your email, calendar item, or tweet.

This update comes in addition to the already offered Skype extension features, such as the ability to communicate directly from within your browser, share web pages and launch Skype with one click or tap.
