Microsoft’s new vision for Intelligent Communications
Microsoft is aiming to bring the capabilities of Skype for Business in the cloud into Microsoft Teams to deliver a single hub for teamwork, with built-in, fully integrated voice and video.
By tightly weaving communications into the apps people use to collaborate every day, Intelligent Communications will be enabled, revolutionizing calling and meeting experiences.
Skype will remain the product name and Skype for Business remains as the product name for the on-premises server. The Skype for Business brand will also surface in voice and video experiences within Microsoft Teams.
What does this mean for existing Office 365 customers?
