Skype for Business to Teams Migration: What’s the plan?
Back in September 2017, Microsoft officials announced that they are planning to roll Skype for Business users to its Microsoft Teams group-chat service. Yesterday, Microsoft revealed some more details about this migration plan, which is expected to happen in the second quarter of 2018. Let’s take a look:
Microsoft will supplement the existing group chat capabilities in Teams with additional features such as screen sharing and federation between companies.
For team meetings, in addition to the chat history and audio conferencing preview features that offered by Teams, Microsoft plans to add meeting room support with Skype Room Systems and cloud video interoperability to allow a third-party to connect to Team meetings.
Also, more calling capabilities will be seen such as the ability to use existing lines to activate calling services in Office 365.
Recently, Polycom announced their integration of its HD voice and video technology into Microsoft’s Teams which shows their long-standing partnership with Microsoft and their dedicated support for Microsoft customers.
