Is it time to retire Skype for business?

by | Mar 3, 2020 | Microsoft Teams

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year you’ve no doubt heard of Microsoft Teams. 

Recently Microsoft announced that they are now retiring Skype for business.  This has been a core application of Office 365 for several years.

If you are standard users of Skype (home version), there’s no need to worry.  This is not going anywhere.

Their decision to retire Skype for business was not an easy one.  But with the popularity of Teams, it makes sense for all users of Office 365.

The date has been set for July 31st 2021.  This gives business many months to plan a migration from Skype for business to Microsoft Teams.
