Microsoft Teams Ready to Replace Skype for Business

Late last year, Microsoft revealed that is planned to make Microsoft Teams its primary communications platform for business, supplanting Skype for Business. Before that could be one, Microsoft had to make sure Teams was up to snuff with all the existing features that Skype for Business users take advantage of.

Microsoft says that Teams is ready.

The company has been promoting several features that it brought to Teams, including unified presence, cloud-based meeting recording, direct routing, and many more. For the time being, companies won’t be forced from Skype for Business to Teams, but Microsoft is encouraging Skype users to make the move now.

To ease the transition, the company has released self-serve guidance for upgrading to Teams, along with upgrade tools in the Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center, which are expected to be rolled out to all Office 365 customers over the coming weeks and months. Microsoft also announced that it will offer automated upgrades to Teams for organizations that don’t have the IT resources available to manage things themselves.

While Microsoft has not yet formally announced the date when Skype for Business Online will be discontinued, they have signaled its eventual demise….so companies should plan to move to Teams.
