Skype is for doing things together, whenever you’re apart. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are.

With Skype, you can share a story, celebrate a birthday, learn a language, hold a meeting, work with colleagues – just about anything you need to do together every day. You can use Skype on whatever works best for you - on your phone or computer or a TV with Skype on it. It is free to start using Skype - to speak, see and instant message other people on Skype for example.

Should I upgrade to the newest SKYPE?  The only reason I will is if the internals are better, better clearer communications, new useful features, etc.  I've gotten calls from the clients saying that they got the new SKYPE and it messed up things for them. Than I have to get on and make it usable. I think it's stupid to arbitrarily change user interfaces.  It has always pissed me off.  There's still many older users who depend on these  programs in their day to day life. Screwing around with interfaces  makes more  difficult for them.  Having said this, is there a reasonable technical reason to upgrade.  I ask since I've been getting messages on my current SKYPE about communications problems.  I'm running Windows 10 Pro on a Optiplex XE2 desktop with two monitors, 32 GB of RAM, a 500 GB Samsung 850 SSD and I5-4570S CPU.
Thanks,
Al

Maybe something that combines with google voice or skype.
Want to use windows 10 computer and regular headset.
Ideally no additional hardware but if hardware is needed for 4 phone numbers then

Skype sound not working.  The sound works on other applications no problem. I've checked the device settings - done the audio test - has worked fine. Am running both Skype for business and "ordinary" Skype but they've lived happily together until now.  Try the Sound Echo test - not a peep out of it...any suggestions. Thanks.  Skype version 12.1803.279.0

How is a two server Edge pool in Skype for Business 2015 server on premise load balanced?  
If I just have one server in the pool it works just fine.  As soon as the second server is added, no one can connect.
We have the external NICs load balanced and NAT'ed so that we only have to use 3 public IP's instead of 6 or 7.

Hello Experts - I've been asked to deploy a video conference system for a meeting room to use with services like Skype and WebEx.  I got a quote that came in well over 20k which is far too much for us.  I'd like to see if I can setup a system myself using a less complicated configuration.  For example, the proposal included a VoIP bridge to our existing phone system, audio mixer, ceiling mounted speakers, amplifiers and so on.  There is a dedicated PC in the room so I'm thinking of just mounting a decent USB camera on the wall under the display and a ceiling mounted microphone which connects back to the PC's 1/8" audio jack.  We could then use the display's built-in speakers to hear the audio.  Maybe my setup is too simple and I'm missing something.  What would you recommend to get the job done but keep the price reasonable?

Skype For Business

How do I force  automatic login for Skype for business on client computers.

Skype is such a nice took to have in your environment but at the same time so useless if people aren't logged in.

Is there a way to automatically sign users into Skype when they login on their computers ?

As always we trying to avoid going to each user to update their settings manually.

Looking forward to hear from the experts.

We have a Skype for Business 2015 solution hosted by a third party (Not O365). I have been asked for detailed reporting such as

Number of calls into the company by a person (external only)
Total number of call received (external only)
How many of those calls answered within 10 sec (or around 4 rings)
How many of those calls answered outside of 10 sec
How many of those calls not answered (dropped/missed)
How many of those calls went to voice mail facility

I want this for some users - and some response groups. I don't need it for all users or all response groups.

My SfB supplier is telling me that the inbuilt reporting in Skype is mainly for fault diagnostics and have suggested a third party products which is extremely expensive based on a per user basis, and I have to pay for all users even though I only need reporting for around 10%.

Can anyone tell me if SfB can natively generate reports like I want? And if not, can anyone recommend a solution please?

Hi,

User name spelling shows incorrect when just one specific user tries to search for her/him.

I have checked AD, name spelling is correct.

When I search for that user in Skype, the spelling is correct.

It is just one user that continues to see wrong spelling.

Please advise any solution.

Thank you in advance.

Just looking for recommendations on the best way to transfer to Skype for business. I have it with one email account but my "ordinary" Skype account is using another email address. What's the best way to get my contacts across to the SFB account? Do I need to tell all my current Skype contacts that I am using a new account? Should I then uninstall the "ordinary" Skype?
Thanks

Hello all,

One of my customers is having an issue with Skype for Business.  Two companies are trying to communicate with each other.  We'll call them Comp_ A and Comp_B.

Comp_B has no issues at all seeing users in Comp_A.  They are always available.  When Comp_A tries to look at the contacts for Comp_B, they will show "presence unknown".  It will stay like that and Comp_A cannot chat to Comp_B UNTIL Comp_B sends a message to a user in Comp_A.   Then the user in Comp_B will show as online, active, away, etc....that is until the next day then they go back to showing as "Presence Unknown" again.

I did an NSLOOKUP and everything comes back looking fine.

I'm using Skype For Business 16.13.184 on Mac OS 10.13.2

We are testing out Skype for Business with our Office 365 Business Premium license and the first thing I noticed is I cannot paste an Image from the clipboard into the chat. I can Attach an Image, but thats more work if I'm sending screen shots.   Seems to work on Windows.

All of my Office 365 users have a Office 365 Business Premium license.   We have Conference numbers and Conference IDs assigned by our Audio conferencing service. I see where it takes about using 3rd Party and Import/Export, though I don't actually see where you can enter in the 3rd Party Provider and Import the Numbers for the users.

If I select one of the existing Providers they all want a 6 Digit Conference ID, ours are all 4 Digit.

I would like to be able to use our existing Audio Conferencing system with Skype For Business.

Thanks,

I have been playing around with Skype for Business. I believe I have my Skype set up OK in Office 365. What I can't figure out is how to host a meeting and invite someone. Anyone have a quick tutorial?

Dear Experts,

I have a client who launched Skype that is already installed.

After launching Skype, she got the prompt for elevated privilege to update Skype.

My client informed me that this has never happened before.

Usually the behavior is, the user signs in to Skype first and then gets the prompt whether to update or not.

Is what my client said correct?

How can I explain to her in layman terms on the Skype update?
