I have one link in my webpage where user can call to other skype user.

<a href="skype:skype_username?call">Call me</a>

But when user have not skype installed in their pc one notification popup is coming.

Is there any way in any manner i can detect is skype is installed or not? so i can give custom message to install skype.

Somewhat you have to give a alternate link to download skype.Use the icon of Skype before your href and give the tool tip as click here to download skype. This is just my suggestion. I dont know how to identify whether they installed skype


According to some threads on stackoverflow, there was at some point a detection method available, but at the skype website there is no trace of it.

However, if skype is not installed, then you will get a popup that you need it.


i also found this during search, but don't know how to implement it in coding as i have no idea of action script.
