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.

If the t thread gets too complex or you want to remote view a desktop, it would be ideal to have a "start a meeting" function firing up Skype! Bonus being able to define which users in the chat should be in the Skype meeting
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! -WarrenSean O'Quin commented
Although we are using Teams differently than Skype... there should only be one activity status across the Microsoft stack (Yammer, Office, Outlook,Teams etc.)
