Is it possible to create a room instantly via URL?

I have been searching the page for any ways to start a room instantly using a URL, i.e. creates a new room with the linked video. Sadly I couldn’t find anything related to this.

This would also integrate well with DuckDuckGo Bangs, i.e. !w2g would instantly create a room, making things a lot easier.

If this feature already exists, please link me to it.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks a lot for your input! This is somewhat possible with this URL scheme:[URL_of_a_Video]

It will not immediately create a new room but prompt you to create a new one or (when logged in) allows you to share the video into one of your existing rooms.

I never heard of DuckDuckGo Bangs. Can you explain?

Thank you for your help, it’s greatly appreciated!

DuckDuckGo Bangs are “shortened commands” for the DuckDuckGo search engine. If you want to search something, you can enter a command and your search term, i.e. !a toothbrush if you want to search Amazon for tooth brushes. You will be taken directly to the corresponding website without having to click or enter anything.

It saves time and effort when browsing the interwebs :slight_smile:

Cool, can you create these bangs yourself or is this something DuckDuckGo has to setup?

One can submit requests for Bangs to be added, which I already did after your reply yesterday.

I’ll update once my request has been reviewed by DuckDuckGo.

Cool, thank you very much!
