Revamped Skype For Business Rolls Out For Office 365

On Tuesday Microsoft released Skype for business replacing Lync one of its older services. Microsoft first revealed their plans of replacing Lync last November a move that surprised some in the business world.

The new Microsoft Skype for business is set to roll out later this month and Microsoft stated that you everyone should expect having it on their computer by the end of May.

Unlike other products which Microsoft has released in the past the release of the Skype update was, well, very dull. Many believe the reason as to why Microsoft did not make such a big fuss about the release of Skype for business because they want their customers to make the transition very smoothly with less hassle. That said it’s good to note that Microsoft has left the consumer Skype Client unchanged.

A statement that was issued out by Microsoft stated that, “Skype for Business is based on the familiar Skype experience that more than 300 million people use every month to connect with friends and family.”

The Microsoft statement went on further to state that, “It is built right into Office, so features like presence, IM, voice and video calls, and online meetings are an integrated part of the Office experience. And with Skype for Business, you can search for and connect with anyone in the Skype network–inside or outside your organization.”
According to Andrew Snodgrass, a research vice president at analyst firm Directions on Microsoft, "there’s no massive underlying technological change that has occurred."
