Microsoft Skype for Business Online

Microsoft Skype for Business Online is going to be transitioned into Microsoft Teams over the coming months and years. While Skype for Business will remain available for on premises customers with Skype for Business Server, Skype for Business Online is very likely to be discontinued at some point in time in the future. However, existing customers can continue using Skype for Business Online until they are ready for the transition.

Teams can now fully replace Skype for Business Online. The current Skype for Business to Teams Roadmap can be found here, showing currently available and planned features.
