Roadmap to bring all Skype for Business features and functionality to Microsoft Teams is complete. As of today, October 1st 2018, Skype for Business will not be included for new Office 365 tenants with less than 500 seats. Existing O365 tenants currently using Skype for Business will be able to continue using it until transition
Microsoft Teams is currently used by over 200,000 organizations, according to Microsoft, spread over the globe in 180+ markets. Good numbers, although not even close to those of Slack, or even Microsoft’s own Skype for Business. To challenge Slack, WebEx from Cisco and other team collaboration platforms, Microsoft released a free version of Teams earlier
Microsoft Teams is one step closer to completely replacing Skype for Business with all SfB call and meeting features already added to it. Quarter 2 in 2018 has seen meeting broadcasts, cloud recording, scheduling Teams meetings in Outlook and other remaining SfB features getting integrated into Teams.
