The Mac Moment for Office 365

macMicrosoft has released the Skype for Business client for your Mac! One of the huge holes in the lineup has been plugged. For Mac users, you now have functions much like the PC users on your team.  Here is a list of functionality you can enjoy.

  • One-click join    See your schedule for today and tomorrow, preview meeting details, and join right from the Meetings tab.
  • Meeting actions    Easily mute, add participants, IM your colleagues, and share and view the desktop.
  • Contacts    Finding and adding contacts has never been easier. Call, chat, and share your desktop in a snap.
  • Groups    Add or remove contact groups and distribution lists. When you send a message to a contact group or DL, everybody in that group gets the message.
  • Chats    Use instant messaging (IM) to connect with your contacts in real time and on a moment’s notice.
  • Chat history    Find a previous conversation and rejoin a conversation at any time.
  • Presence    Let people know that you’re available, and also see whether people are offline or online, and whether they’re busy, in a meeting, or available.
  • Personal notes    Add a message to your presence status to give people more information about what you’re up to.
  • Video    Full screen and high-definition video for a better meeting experience.
  • Group video calling    See up to four meeting participants in the meeting window at the same time, with better video quality, smart transitions from presenters and participants, and the ability to share content
  • Calls    Manage all aspects of calling with voice mail, missed calls, call logs, call forwarding, and simultaneous ringing.
  • Mobile   Skype for Business is now on iOS so you can take this great functionality with it anywhere
