No new updates.
We continue to work towards the S4B convergence.
Official roadmap for the convergence: https://skypeandteams.blob.core.windows.net/artefacts/Skype%20for%20Business%20to%20Teams%20Capabilities%20Roadmap.pdf
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
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
This item is still on the backlog. Though it is making its way up through the queue.
I’ll keep you posted as it gets closer.
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.
