Microsoft, in line with a recent announcement, is starting to roll out Skype for Business for Office 365 users with Office 2013 in conjunction with its April patch updates. The rollout is planned to be complete by the end of May.
Skype for Business is based on the, previous consumer Skype experience that more than 300 million people use every month. It’s integrated with Office, so features like presence, Instant Messaging, voice and video calls, and online meetings are a consolidated Office experience. With Skype for Business, you can search for and connect with anyone in the Skype network (inside or outside your business).
