Skype for Business is Here...
Well, you heard right - Skype for Business has officially taken over for Lync. As of April 14th, your online meetings and video conferencing will now be done via Skype for Business. The great part is, with over 300 million Skype users and 100 million Lync users, you're bound to already have some experience with Skype for Business. Also, you can search and talk with anyone on the Skype network - making it easier to stay connected wherever you are. You can read more about Skype for Business in our latest blog and find some additional resources there too.
