This request is still queued within our backlog. No new details yet.
Integration with Skype Consumer is no longer under review, and officially planned.
Does "Call Support between Teams & Skype Consumer" cover this as well:
- Group messages
- Screen sharing
@warren I don't see anything called consumer federation on the road map you linked to - I also get 0 hits on "convergence".
We have the exact same issue. Quite a few staff are happy with Skype and see no reason to switch to Teams. To make matters worse is that we don't have a centralised IT department that maintains staff workstations, or can mandate the tool of choice.
We know many of you are waiting for a Teams client for Linux, and we’re pleased to confirm we’re actively working on it. Stay tuned for more information.
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
