  1. It gets weirder. The desktop sharing experience is the same as consumer skype, and meeting join for scheduled team meetings is completely separate (it launches into a teams meeting and not a skype one). It will be really interesting to see how teams and SFB work together down the line...or if one replaces the other. Add federation and PSTN to teams, and you're most of the way there.

    1. Agree. Also wondering if S4B IM integrates with Teams? I feel the biggest competitor to S4B will be Teams.

  2. Do you need Skype for Business for the meetings, voice and video?
