Adding Skype to OUtlook

We have office 365 Education and it has Skype in the online Outlook app.  Can Skype be added to the desktop version of our Outlook?  If so, please advise.

Thank you!

Multiple accounts are not a problem (although you might have some issues if the account you use in SfB does not match the primary Outlook account). The add-in is installed as part of the SfB package, if it's missing you might need to enable it as detailed here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3097122/skype-meeting-control-is-not-displayed-on-outlook-2016

It's added by default with the Office install. In case you use a version that does not include SfB, download/install the standalone one: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49440

Or do you mean the "consumer" Skype?

We have skype for business in Office 365 but it is not listed as an add in on my desktop version of Outlook.  Is that because I have multiple email accounts from other organisations there?

Ok I have the Skype icon but it is disabled.  Any ideas?

Is it disabled in the Addons. Can you enable it? If you can't Enable it then you need to check in the Event Viewer Logs why Outlook is failing to enable the Addon. You might need to reinstall your SfB Client.
