Skype for Business lets you quickly connect with others across your company or around the world.

It looks and feels like Skype, but has added productivity features that help run your business efficiently, like seeing when someone is available, in a meeting, or presenting, providing industrial strength security for calls, or broadcasting a meeting online to a large audience.

In the main window, find contacts, make voice or video calls, or just hover over the person you want to connect with.

Then select IM, call, video chat, or schedule a meeting to start a conversation.

Once you’re in a chat, you can pull in other people and add audio.

You can also share your screen, and have others take control to help out.

Skype for Business works with your other Office programs, so you can chat, call, or join a meeting with a click.

Online meetings are created just like regular ones in Outlook.

Call-in info and links are added to the invite automatically.

When it’s time to meet, click on the link in your email.

Your contacts can still attend even if they don’t have Skype for Business.

Once you’re in a meeting, click More Options to see additional features, including recording in full HD.

Skype for Business helps you and your contacts stay in touch and be productive across the Office 365 apps.
