Integration with Skype Consumer is no longer under review, and officially planned.Jesse commented
Why was this declined? I dont feel such a feature from people and companies who pay for it should be denied especially when we are the ones who use it everyday.Jesse commented
I get the purpose of not letting regular skype users not being able to use Teams, however, since Teams is a paid subscription, I think we should be able to import our regular skype contact list, and be able to chat with whomever from Teams. Seems kinda blah to have to switch back and forth between the 2 platforms.
I apologize, there had been come miscommunication with regards to this topic.
The good news is that this item has not been declined! It has actually been approved by the feature team and is now “On the Backlog”.
I’ll keep this thread updated as we move through the development.

It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
