Just a super efficient way to quickly connect with co-workers and business partners! Skype for Business is IM, calling, video calling, and sharing and collaboration all rolled into one package.

Learn how to set up and use your computer’s built-in mic and speakers, or a headset, or another device for Skype for Business audio.


In Skype for Business, your contacts are the online identities of the people you communicate with a lot—both within your organization and outside of it (if they have a Skype account). Either way, you can add them to your Contacts list so they’ll be just a click away. Add people by name, by instant messaging address, or, if they are in your organization, by phone number. Every contact you add is assigned membership in one or more of your contact groups

​ ​ ​

How to Send an Instant Message

Set Up a Skype Meeting in Outlook

Join a Skype Meeting




Skype for Business instant messaging (IM) is an efficient way to connect with your contacts in real time and on a moment’s notice. Less formal than email, faster than a phone call—IM is tough to beat for speed and ease of use. You can send an instant message from anywhere in Skype for Business where you see a contact. Just check that the person's presence indicator is green first. This indicates that they are available.

You can use Outlook or Outlook Web App to schedule a Skype meeting--the same way you schedule meetings normally but with one or two extra clicks. If your account is configured for dial-in conferencing, the Skype meeting request will automatically include call-in information (phone number and conference ID).

​Most of the time, joining a Skype for Business meeting is as simple as clicking the meeting link. And you can join from anywhere, such as an airport, a coffee shop, your hotel, or your mobile device when you’re on the road.
