NOTE: Skype has discontinued the use of our Skype ID so you can no longer connect to our ID 'join.conference' no matter which device and/or operating system you are using with Skype.
The Quick Scoop on Using Skype
Skype can be used to dial into a conference line with a local number and the 6 digit PIN code if the caller has Skype credit, or free calling with their Skype account. The steps to do that are:
1. Open Skype.
2. In the Skype interface click the 'Call' icon to bring up the Skype dial pad.
3. Dial a local number from our system to connect. For example, you can dial our (206) 402-0100 number. Full List of Local Numbers Here
4. Once connected, use the dial pad to enter the 6 digit Conference ID, followed by the # key to confirm. Something to keep in mind is that you must type in the PIN manually, you cannot copy and paste to the dial pad.
Note: Skype looks very different on different platforms. Skype on Mac looks nothing like Skype on PC, iOS, or Android. Even different versions of Windows display very different versions of Skype. See our Skype Instructions page for platform-specific instructions.
Why Using Skype Can Be a Pain
If you tried the above steps, you may have had difficulty when you have to show the dial pad. Unfortunately, Skype makes it difficult to find the dial pad, and the Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, and Android versions of Skype look nothing alike. Not only that, but different releases on the same device look different from year to year.
Even Skype has trouble explaining to its own users how to find the dial pad. Try going to the Skype Community Page and type in "dial pad" to see what we mean.
That's why if you are having issues, we suggest using Web Call or Phone instead of Skype.
