Please check “Teams/Skype Consumer chat and calling interop” on the public roadmap at microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters.. for updates.
Please let your customers know the timeline on this!
How is not already a thing? Teams should absolutely work with Skype personal. It's the only thing holding us back to migrating to teams - we have a lot of other customers/staff that use skype personal.
Cancelling Skype for business without allowing Microsoft Teams to communicate with public Skype would be a huge mistake. I would love to be a fly on the wall during those meeting discussions about Teams. "Say John, do you think we should let Teams chat with public Skype users?" John: "Nah, no one will need that. I've done zero market research but that seems dumb." No John, you're dumb.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered for testing the Office 365 group calendar. The TAP team will be reaching out as we are closer to being ready.
