The best features of Lync and Skype have been combined in a Skype-inspired user interface. The user experience is more tightly aligned between Skype for Business and Skype, so the features are similar and intuitive whether you’re in a work environment or communicating with family.
Skype for Business will include other new features such as:
- Familiar Skype icons for audio and video calling
- A call monitor to keep active calls visible while switching between apps
- Enterprise connection with the Skype network through IM, audio, and video
- A simpler upgrade and patch process for Skype for Business Server and more
No. Skype for Business will deliver the same features and functionality as well as the control, security, and reliability that enterprise customers expect. For instance, Skype for Business admins can decide how and when the user interface is displayed. This additional control means they can deliver Skype for Business on their terms.
