Lync conversation chat doesn't open in Android RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm building a mobile hybrid application and i'm facing with an issue for several days. I don't know if it's possible or not, but I have the need to open the Lync conversation chat by using the javascript call.

    I tried the following URL schemes, but without luck:

    •'sip:' + address, '_system'); -- doesn't open Lync at all
    •'sip://' + address, '_system'); -- doesn't open Lync at all
    •'lync://' + address, '_system'); -- only opens Lync, but no conversation chat
    •'lync://' + address + '?chat', '_system'); -- only opens Lync, but no conversation chat
    •'lync:' + address + '?chat', '_system'); -- Lync crashes

    I managed to open conversation chat on my desktop browser simply with IM:<>, but it doesn't work on Android.

    I didn't test such calls on iOS, but several forums saying that sip: should work.

    Which is the action to open the conversation chat?

    Thanks in advance.
