“Join Skype Meeting” or “Join Lync Meeting” not working with Google Chrome

Standard

An update to Goggle Chrome has disabled support for the Netscape Plugin API (NPAPI), which is being used by Lync and Skype for Business to launch the meeting on behalf of the client.

This will only happen if you’re using Chrome as your default browser.

The workaround:

  • Use a different browser as your default browser.

OR

  • type the following in Google Chrome’s address bar: Chrome://Flags/#enable-npapi
  • Click “Enable”

enablenpapi

  • Restart Chrome
  • Reinitiate the meeting join process
  • Enable the plugin

  • Refresh the Browser

MeetingOK

You’re good to go!
