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.

Wholeheartedly agree with this. While I'd love for the persistent chats to be accessible via skype, our main heartache is that IM's in teams stay in Teams. It should communicate over your Skype rather than having yet another messaging app. With that said, Teams is almost amazing and I think will be when integrated with Skype.
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

My university has a policy on managing profile pictures and is causing a problem with Teams adoption until we can remove the ability to change their pictures. Please allow either a central way to manage profile picture permissions, respect the OWA mailbox policy, or add another spot to disable for Teams.
