The Skype for Business interface brings telephony, video conferencing, audio calling and content sharing into one application - saving you both time and money. Discover the benefits of barrier-free communication and collaboration today!

Skype Meetings – Being successful with Intelligent Communications

Your most important business tools combined into one app - Instant Messaging, Audio- & Video Calls, Online Meetings and Content Sharing. See the contact cards from all of your business contacts so you can quickly check if they are available to send them a message, an e-mail or start a quick call. You can even schedule meetings and see the history of your Instant Messages in Outlook. Because Skype for Business and Office 365 work together seamlessly, you can even start meetings from apps like Word and PowerPoint to present and share whatever you're working on.

Easily connect with anyone, anywhere from your favorite device!

Reach out to your business contacts using your favorite device or a web browser, or invite up to 250 people to join your meetings - even if they don't use Skype for Business. All they need is a phone or internet connection. The communication is always protected by strong authentication and encryption standards.

Future Development of Skype for Business Online: Increase your Productivity with new Skype for Business capabilities brought to Microsoft Teams!

With Teams, Microsoft is paving the way to transition from Unified Communications to Intelligent Communications (IC) by making Microsoft Teams THE “hub for teamwork” within Office 365 and the core communications client for Office 365 customers. According to Microsoft, this facet of the modern workplace is being built on a new, modern Skype infrastructure for enterprise-grade voice and video communications providing both speed of innovation and higher quality communication experiences. In the near future, we will see Teams evolve as the primary client for intelligent communications in Office 365, replacing the current Skype for Business client over time.
