Beginning 14 April, Lync Online will become Skype for Business – combining the natural, collaborative way that Skype enables people to speak face-to-face with the security and control of Lync.
Lync will automatically update itself after 14 April.
Skype for Business connects people everywhere to do more together
After the organisation has transitioned to Skype for Business, you will benefit from:
Skype design – Skype for Business uses the same interface as Skype – if you’ve used Skype, you’re already familiar with Skype for Business.
Global reach – Voice and video connectivity to the entire Skype network.
Full Lync feature set – Because Skype for Business builds on existing Lync features, no features or functionality will be lost.
Schedule an online meeting. Make a video call. Add a new emoticon to your next IM chat. Skype for Business makes communication easy and makes you more productive. Not sure how you’ll best use it? Have a look at this video for some ideas.
