Microsoft Says It Has Conveyed In Its Intent To Convey Skype For Business Highlights To Teams

Microsoft authorities say they've followed through on their guaranteed guide for conveying Skype for Business Online highlights to Microsoft Teams. In any case, do clients concur?

In July at its yearly accomplice gathering, Microsoft told participants that its Teams amass talk stage had achieved "highlight equality" with Skype for Business Online. Today, August 24, Microsoft made that declaration official, saying it has conveyed on its guide for conveying Skype for Business Online highlights to Teams. 

"We are satisfied to report we have finished our guide for bringing Skype for Business Online highlights and usefulness into Teams," authorities said by means of the present blog entry. (Here's a connection to the movement guide.) 

A year ago, Microsoft reported plans to supplant Skype for Business Online with its Teams amass talk stage. 

In the present blog entry about the accomplishment, Microsoft featured the informing, gatherings, purposes for living and gadget biological system upgrades it has made in Teams "as of late." 

In the calling field, where Microsoft had the most work to do in conveying Skype for Business Online highlights to Teams, this is what Microsoft says it currently offers in Teams: 

  • Manager and delegate bolster 
  • Call lines 
  • Auto-specialist 
  • Consultative exchange 
  • Try not to exasperate leap forward 
  • The capacity to forward a call to a gathering 
  • Out-of-office bolster 
  • Coordinate Routing for conveying a client's own telephone utility to Teams 


Microsoft's guide for the Skype for Business/Teams change still records a few undertaking voices includes as "coming in Q4 CY 2018" (before the finish of the quarter). On that rundown are Call Park, Group call pickup, a see of area-based directing and Shared Line Appearance. I've inquired as to whether the organization as of now is making these highlights accessible to Teams clients; no word back up until this point. 

Refresh (August 24): Ah, so those four highlights were never part of Skype for Business Online in any case, a Microsoft representative said. The full explanation: 

"There is four undertaking level voice includes on the guide for bringing in Teams (call stop, aggregate call pickup, area-based directing, and shared line appearance) that have not been accessible in Skype for Business Online to date. They will make their online presence when they are conveyed in Teams this date-book year." 

At the point when Microsoft told accomplices in June that Skype for Business and Teams were at highlight equality, in excess of a couple of Microsoft clients were all around wary of those cases. Telephone bolster in Teams isn't almost prepared for prime time, some said. What's more, various other Skype for Business includes either are in simple stages or additionally not there yet, they said. 

Microsoft is putting forth self-benefit direction with best practices and assets to clients who either need to utilize Skype for Business and Teams next to each other or to progress totally to Teams. It is likewise attempting to give redesign/movement apparatuses in the Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business Admin Center, which will be accessible to all Office 365 clients later this date-book year. 

Microsoft additionally is intending to offer clients "Microsoft-driven computerized moves up to Teams" as a choice. Clients qualified for this will be informed through email and in the Office 365 Message Center. 

So when will Microsoft require all Skype for Business clients to get off the stage? The Redmondians still are not giving a cut-off date (I asked again today). 

Just to be clear, the on-premises form of Skype for Business is staying around for some time, as Microsoft has said it will make Skype for Business 2019 accessible in the last 50% of this current year. 

Microsoft authorities say of the 200,000 associations presently utilizing Teams.
