And we all knew that eventually Teams would replace SFBO – and that integration was already in place
Now that this integration is complete, Microsoft are planning to make Microsoft Teams the primary communications client in Office 365.
If you already have customers that are using Skype for Business Online, they will still be able to do so (and this includes the new users that they might provision) until they complete their transition to Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft has already started offering automatic updates from Skype for Business Online to Microsoft Teams for their direct customers. administrators will be given advanced notice via email and through the Office 365 Message Centre.
So for those of you who either has a new SMB customer in the making with plans of utilizing SFBOnline, or even a larger customer that hoped to do POC on a new tenant – well i Guess plans have changed.
