Please check “Teams/Skype Consumer chat and calling interop” on the public roadmap at microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters.. for updates.Mattias V. commented
I don't understand why you wouldn't allow cross communications between Teams and the public Skype.
Having the option to enable or disable this functionality would be great for everyone.
Company's that don't want it, can just turn it off, but company's that are currently using the public Skype, or need to be able to communicate to customers, or in our case, suppliers and software developers who are still using public Skype accounts, would have a big extra reason to consider giving Teams a go.
As it stands now however, it's more a reason NOT to consider Teams..
I hope this decision will be reconsidered, and reverted.
