Microsoft Teams will soon replace Skype for Business - VentureBeat

Microsoft Teams will soon replace Skype for Business - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
In addition to the slew of new products announced at Ignite, Microsoft’s enterprise technology conference in Orlando, the company also unveiled its plans for Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business. As rumored earlier this month, the former will supplant the latter. Microsoft Teams will become the core communications client in Office 365, eventually replacing the current Skype for Business client, though the company didn’t give a specific timeframe.

Microsoft Teams launched worldwide in March as part of Office 365. The company has been furiously updating it ever since, including as recently as earlier this month with guess access.

Bots will soon be able to join video conversations in 1:1 and group Skype calls, Microsoft announced today.

Bot builders can use the BotBuilder RealTimeMediaCalling extension on Github, now in preview, to bring Skype bots into video conversations. A software development kit for the creation of interactive Skype video bots will be released at an undetermined date, a Skype spokesperson told VentureBeat.

“This platform provides real-time, voice and video streams of a Skype call which allows developers to build personal, immersive communications experiences with services and brands,” Skype said in a blog post today.

Skype updates Chrome extension to make it easier to send call links in tweets, emails, and calendar invites - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
With the Chrome extension installed, users will now see a little Skype icon in Twitter’s tweet composition window, which, when clicked, adds a link for anyone to join in your call.

Additionally, the new Chrome extension makes it easier to generate call links directly from within the web-based email clients Gmail, Google Inbox, and Outlook.com, as well as Google and Microsoft’s respective calendar applications.

You can now send files with Skype when the recipient is offline - TechWorld

You can now send files with Skype when the recipient is offline - TechWorld | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Microsoft stepped up its battle with the armada of mobile messaging apps on Tuesday, announcing that Skype users can now send files to each other without the recipient needing to be online.

That means a user could tweak a presentation and send it to a colleague over the weekend, and have it waiting for them when they log into Skype on Monday morning.

It's a big improvement over the previous functionality, which required both parties to be online. The new approach also lets users access the file across multiple devices, which means they can read the same document on their phone, computer or tablet, without having to request it over and over again.
