Microsoft Teams is overtaking Skype4B
Have you heard Skype for Business is going to be replaced by Microsoft Teams?
Your experience is completely going to change with the new Office 365:
- All the good stuff from Skype4B is being transferred to Teams.
- Skype for Business will continue to exist, as a secondary platform, and be supported by Microsoft on-premises and in the Cloud. You can keep using it if you like.
- Microsoft are making Teams a hub for Office 365 users, so we can access anything to do with chatting, meeting and sharing docs from Teams. We won’t need to toggle between platforms, which is good.
Microsoft are moving away from Skype4B because it’s built on an older tech platform. Teams was built for the cloud, so Microsoft’s programmers have limitless scope to expand its capabilities, and they’ve already got big plans for how they’re going to do that.
Where to next?
