Microsoft’s plan to ultimately replace its Skype for Business Online communications service with Microsoft Teams has achieved a key milestone, company officials say. Not all users agree, though.
Microsoft may be ahead of its own self-imposed schedule for bringing the features of Skype for Business to its Teams group-chat product.
Last year, Microsoft announced plans to replace Skype for Business Online with its Teams group-chat platform.
During this week’s Microsoft Inspire partner show, more than one company official told attendees that Teams is at complete “feature parity” with Skype for Business.
Ron Markezich, Corporate Vice President of Office 365 Marketing, told partners during his keynote address that “now that we have parity between Skype for Business Online and Microsoft Teams, you have the ability to create voice-managed services and modernize the customer’s voice infrastructure.”
