Please check “Teams/Skype Consumer chat and calling interop” on the public roadmap at microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters.. for updates.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.
This item is still under consideration by the feature team.
Once support for Windows 10 native notifications is released, users who choose to use Windows notifications will be able to utilize Windows OS specific settings for the length of time to display notifications. Mac does not have an OS specific setting, so will not have the support.
This feature is still being reviewed by the feature team. No decision has been made yet. I’ll keep you posted.
