Microsoft is officially retiring Skype for Business Online on 31st July 2021. This means that you will no longer be able to access this service as it completely halts beyond this date. Whilst it has proven to be valuable for many businesses and has aided in real-time communications, it is now replaced by a more robust application that goes beyond Skype’s capabilities.

Microsoft Teams is Skype’s successor combining instant messaging, voice and video calls, and document collaboration and application integration—all in just a single app. Teams has been available for you in Office 365 Business and Enterprise subscription models since 2017 and has proven to be one of the most indispensable communication and productivity applications since then.

If you are still using Skype for Business Online, you are missing out on Teams’ benefits that can help you level up your people’s productivity. Now is the best time for you to migrate to Microsoft Teams.
