Please check “Teams/Skype Consumer chat and calling interop” on the public roadmap at microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters.. for updates.Peter commented
Warren, similar to the others in this thread, this is a critical need for us as a firm. We need to continue communicating with our many external independent consultants, for whom Skype is second nature. Without the ability for us to use Teams to include Skype consumer users in our meetings, our staff will have to juggle the two platforms and manually transfer documents etc... This drastically undercuts the premise of Teams being a one-stop-shop for collaboration and hinders serious adoption.
