Microsoft has launched their new Skype for the desktop to increasingly turn the messenger system into a unified communications and collaboration tool that works in conjunction with Office 365.
The new Skype for the desktop has improved the way businesses connect with internal and external organisations. The addition of @mentions within Skype follows the same format as Outlook to expand its integration into Office 365 and provides personalised themes and chat lists to enrich the Skype experience.
Skype for the desktop allows you to have the same experience across all business devices to allow for natural connectivity and collaboration. New features and tools now include:
The new multi-function video calling also allows you to effortlessly collaborate with colleagues, customers and suppliers across multiple devices. Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Linux users who benefit from automatic updates enabled, will be able to start using Skype for desktop very soon.
