The next generation of Skype for Business for Mac has arrived. Here’s everything you need to know to get up and running and realize instant gains in productivity, security, and communication efficiency.
Skype for Business on Mac gives users the same powerful features Windows users are currently experiencing. Mac users can utilize HD audio and video conferencing with up to 250 people, conduct polls, schedule meetings, and use online versions of Office 365 applications.
The new client will work with both Skype for Business Online, Skype for Business 2015 and Lync 2013.
As a meeting organizer, you can invite anyone who can connect to the Skype for Business web application. Attendees can join anonymously regardless of operating system.
Skype for Business on Mac clients requires OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) or OS X 10.12 (Sierra). In order to take advantage of Outlook integration, Mac build 15.27 is required. Skype for Business supports the new Skype for Business Server 2015 or existing Lync Server 2013. Schedules, contacts, and meetings in Lync 2013 will all carry over to Skype for Business.
