Skype for Business, previously known as Lync, was specifically made for voice and video calls.
Microsoft Teams has been built as an all-round team collaborating tool which allows for a collaborative environment, allowing users to share and collaborate on projects with popular Microsoft 365 apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, and Power BI, whilst also offering voice calls and video conferencing. For guidance on how Microsoft Teams will be replacing Skype for Business Online, take a look at our blog.
All the features of Skype for Business and more.
Users now have more attributes than ever before, with Hi-Fidelity screen share, even from your mobile device; background blur during video calls to avoid distractions, and pre-meet screens to allow you to adjust your settings before entering calls. Microsoft Teams is a complete collaboration tool when used with the rest of the Microsoft 365 applications.
Microsoft are pushing Teams as their main communication tool, so it’s constantly being developed. Even if your favourite Skype feature isn’t yet available, it won’t be long before it is.
