I just tried out this new feature in our internal rings — it is super cool! Hoping it passes validation easily. Will let you know as it nears shipping.
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!
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.
The only reason I have SFB open is to make and receive PSTN calls, If you integrate that I am good to go with using Teams for everything.
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
