        Hi everyone, wanted to give you an update since it’s been a while.

        We did resolve this issue, and have this live in our internal rings — we are now starting to move it along our outer rings for more validation testing. It was having some validation issues before, which is why the fix didn’t come out sooner, but it should move much more smoothly now.

        I’m anticipating this will be done by the end of the month. I’ll make sure to update you once its complete. Thanks so much for your patience, and for helping us make Teams great!

        Sincerely,
        Suphatra

          More good news on this front! This week we shared our official roadmap for convergence: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Roadmap-for-Skype-for-Business-capabilities-coming-to-Microsoft/ba-p/119636

          And here’s the PPT deck of the roadmap in case the GIFY makes you dizzy:

          Tweet me at @skprufo if you have any questions and I’ll see what I can dig up for you.

          Thanks,

          they should just unify the two threads, they could still mark them inside to show some were skype and some were teams, but really the users don't care and shouldn't need to be bothered with that info

          Joseph Fountain commented  · 

          I agree, we don't need more apps at work, we need less and more streamlined apps, teams seems so close to right, but for now skype just has more functionality, particularly screen sharing without voice/video, screen control and conversation history in outlook (makes it searchable). Skype is also smaller so if you are chatting it doesn't take up your whole screen where teams seems to be an app you work in exclusively

            Hey everyone, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the engineering team has let me know they’ve come up against some pressing resource restraints causing them to pause work on this item for the time being. So we’re moving this one to the backlog for now.

            However, this is not off our radar and certainly not off mine. We’ll continue to regularly revisit this item with the team, so please continue to lobby for more votes and add to the comments below. Every voice counts and helps. Thank you!!

            Sincerely,
            Suphatra

            our organization has many teleworkers, most of which work in home offices and some of which are rural without amazing internet speeds. Video puts people on the spot who will be working from home all day and generally are comfortable and don't want to do video in their home. Video takes a lot of bandwidth so it's also avoided for that reason. Lastly, chat is how most conversations start here and many times we want to share a screen or have someone control/take control like in skype.

              Hi everyone, thanks for your comments in this thread, tweets, emails and calls. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions at all; I’m here for YOU! I’ll continue to update this ticket as we make progress towards MSA.

              Just in case you missed it, there is a FAQs in the Guest Access Help Article. Just click the “FAQs” tab here: https://aka.ms/GuestAccessHelp We’re updating them this week with new questions we’ve been getting, like “Is Guest Access available for Business Essentials licenses?” (The answer is yes.)

              Lastly, the team is starting work on Federation so I’ve broken out Federation into its own UserVoice ticket. Please vote and subscribe to updates on its progress here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/20566714

              Warmly,
              Suphatra

                I have some great news to deliver!
                Soon we will be sharing with you the ability of a unified presence! When you click upon your portrait in Teams you will be able to set your status and see it reflected SfB. It doesn’t matter which client is being used (SfB or Teams) they share presence!
                Also, when a meeting starts feedback from Exchange will switch your presence to “busy” for your meeting.
                Look for this early in the new calendar year! -Warren
