Skype for Business Updates: Microsoft Rolls Out Advanced Calling Features in Teams
Back in September 2017, Microsoft announced its new vision for intelligent communications which includes having Microsoft Teams replace Skype for Business for Office 365 users.
Now Microsoft is taking their first steps to bring comprehensive calling and meetings capabilities into Microsoft Teams! These major updates of the new calling features to Microsoft Teams are meant to accommodate previous Skype for Business users. Let’s check out some more details.
