Skype for Business

Skype for Business is the Microsoft software for instant messaging, video chat or e-meetings. The software Skype for Business, formerly called Lync, is intended for use at work, and must therefore not be confused with Skype which is intended for home use.

Microsoft is completely phasing out Skype for Business for the benefit of the more modern software Teams which, in addition to serving as a collaborative tool for groups, also includes chat and video features.
