Windows – How to share Skype group chat link to allow friends to join

skypewindowswindows 7

I know there is a Skype command to get a link for my group chat:

/get uri

It will return a link like:

skype:?chat&blob=GPswtk_abc...def_kvPikkUFUWzoA36MbIURXc

But when I share this link with my friends they cannot join and gets an error saying that the Administrator is not online.

Best Answer

The way to fix it is to set the correct permissions to the group chat:

Just run this two commands (as the chat administrator) before getting the uri:

/set options +HISTORY_DISCLOSED
/set options +JOINING_ENABLED

Now run:

/get uri

And share the link with your friends.

Every new joinner will also be able to see the history of the chat.
