Skype for Business - Windows Phone app released

The Skype team arepleased to announce the availability of the Skype for Business app for Windows Phone.
Skype for Business - Windows Phone appWhat’s new—intuitive interface, more emoticons, improved server communicationsIf you are familiar with the Lync app for Windows Phone, you’ll notice a number of enhancements in the new app. The most noticeable differences right off the bat are the Skype for Business brand and UI, which is intuitive and familiar if you happen to use Skype in your personal communications. We’ve also revamped emoticons, which now offers over 100 emoticons to land your message visually.
We have improved how the app and the server handle conversation notifications. Once you’re notified of a new conversation on your phone, the other clients you have logged in won’t be able to grab the conversation and prevent you from...

  • Skype for Business manager window popping up randomly after typing/clicking/working

    Hello there,
    I work for a national charity and we have recently upgraded our computers and employees to Skype for Business. My co-worker is having an issue where no matter what she's working on, after every few clicks or letters typed, the Skype for Business window pops up. I've looked in the Settings under each tab but I haven't found a solution. It's preventing us getting good work done for those afflicted with the disease we're fighting against, so I was hoping a good samaritan could help me on this community board in fixing the issue.
    I hope that you can help,
    Jena

    does anyone know if there is a way to actually speak to SKYPE? i would like to discuss different business options (I have spent 20 mins searching the website and internet for a contact us and resorted to this, much like google! ridiculous that you cannot speak to a human being !!!)

  • PCWorld commentary on retirement of Skype's modern Windows 8 app

    Instead of trying to bring its touchscreen app up to par with the desktop version, Skype will just discontinue the app altogether.
    With Windows 10 looming, Skype no longer wants to have one app for touchscreens and another for mouse-and-keyboard.
    As such, Microsoft is killing off Skype’s modern touchscreen app for Windows. Starting July 7, anyone who tries to use this app on Windows 8 or higher will be redirected to a download page for the desktop version.
    The news doesn’t affect Skype’s modern Windows Phone app, and Microsoft says nothing will change for users of Windows RT tablets, such as the Surface and Nokia 2520. Presumably, that means Windows RT users will still have access to the app, though it’s unlikely they’ll receive any updates.

    [Topic title updated by moderator to be more descriptive. Original topic title was: "Skype kills its modern Windows 8 app in the name of “efficiency”"]

    Strangely, Skype cited Windows 10 as a reason for abandoning its touchscreen app, but said nothing about offering a universal app for the upcoming operating system. A universal app would bestow a couple of distinct advantages: First, it would allow Skype to distribute its software through the Windows Store, allowing users to automatically get updates and easily re-download the app onto new PCs. It would also let Skype have a single app that works across phones, tablets, PCs, and the Xbox One. As it stands, Skype offers separate apps for each of these product categories, and distributes its desktop program through Skype.com. That’s not to say Skype won’t go universal after Windows 10's launched July 29. Microsoft is working on tools to convert desktop programs into universal apps, and it’d be downright shocking if Skype didn’t lead by example. Still, some of the details on this program are unclear, which might explain why Skype isn’t talking about it. In any case, it’s interesting that Skype is heading in a different direction than Microsoft Office, whose upcoming touch-friendly apps will be completely separate from the main desktop Office suite. Arguably, desktop Office is such a complex piece of software that merging it with the touch version just isn’t feasible right now. Sourced from : Jared Newman | @onejarednewmanPCWorld

  • Skype invites not received by Skype for Business users

    I'm a system Administrator who manages an Office 365 Tenancy.  We are currently testing Skype for Business (formerly Lync Online).During initial testing we are finding that invite requests sent from a Skype account using Skype windows client version 7.5.0.10  is not being received by our Skype for Business windows client (15.0.4711.1002)I have raised this issue with an Engineer that works with the Lync Online Support team and he has duplicated the issue.The strange thing is that invites sent from the Skype for Business (formerly Lync Online) windows client are received successfully by Skype. Has anyone else experienced similar issues?thanks,  

    I have the exact opposite problem. Using Skype for Business (on Windows), I searched for my personal Skype account and sent an invite (at least SfB told me the invite was sent). But after logging on to Skype with my personal account on my Mac, I did not receive the invite. Furthermore, when using Skype to search for my work SfB account, no results were found, even when the "Allow anyone to contact me" setting on that account is selected.

  • Will there be a Skype for Business standalone non click to run installer made available tomorrow?

    I would like to know where I will be able to download a non click to run version of Skype for Business when it is released tomorrow. I need the normal installer because I need to turn off the feature, 'Microsoft Sharepoint Foundation Support' as it breaks
    Outlook in Office 2007.
    Thanks!

    Hi Buck614,
    As Anthony stated, it is a patch to Lync 2013 client.
    A few notes and the related KB for your reference. (Both updates are cumulative and contain all previously released fixes for Lync 2013.)
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2889923
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2889853
    Notes:
    You must install both patches on a minimum build of
    15.0.4569.1506 (SP1).
    After you apply this April 14, 2015 update, Lync 2013 will be upgraded to Skype for Business.  Info about the new
    experience in Skype for Business.
    For your customers information: You can still use the Lync client user interface after you apply this update for Skype for Business. Here is info on how to switch between the Skype
    for Business and the Lync client user interfaces for
    Office 365 users and
    Lync Server 2013 users.
    Best regards,
    Eric

  • Application Insights is not recording any data from the released version of my Windows Phone app

    I released my first Windows Phone app a week ago, and Application Insights worked perfectly to collect usage data whilst in a debug build. However, the released version of the app is not returning any data at all. Is this a common problem for new apps or
    is there a problem that I need to address?
    I configured Application Insights for my app using the information on this guide - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn509554.aspx
    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated, thanks for your help.

    Hi Bernard, thanks for your reply.
    I tested the data using a release package of the Windows Phone app deployed directly to my phone from Visual Studio and the data appeared after around 10 minutes. However, once I published the exact same package to the Windows Phone Store and started using
    the version downloaded from the store, no usage data has been uploaded even after several days of waiting.
    I am using SDK 0.7.1 and Application Insights Tools for Visual Studio v1.3.2. The app is built for WP 8.0 and running on WP 8.1.
    The instrumentation key is 757eeaff-605e-44a2-8eaa-6abf498bfcf5.
    Thanks for your time and help, I really appreciate it.

  • Skype for Business & Lync : Contact icons not appe...

    In our environment we have several users that are using Skype for Business, and the rest using Lync.
    We have noticed that when migrating our users over to Skype for Business, the contact functionality that shows "icons" next to each person's name is now blank.
    As an example, my personal icon shows up for me but none of my contacts show their customized pictures.
    Lync users can see my icon and can see everyone elses.
    Thank you

  • Skype for Business, Transfer Calls appears blank

    After the latest Skype For Business update a set of machines can no transfer calls.When attempting to transfer the "Invite by Name or Phone Number" screen is just a white box with an (x) close button.Once the June update KB/3054791 is removed:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3054791The machine is able to see the UI and transfer the calls correctly?Has anyone see this with the June update? We have further verified that if change your desktop setting for the resolution it wil make the transfer call window blank Default DPI is set to 125%.  Doesn't work.100% works fine.  126% also works fine.  We have been able to reproduce this on two other machines.  Can someone also test to see if the same results happen.

    A little more info... I've gone back to an affected computer and verified that setting the DPI to 125% for an unaffected user causes the issue in that situation. Many of our other computers don't exibit this issue after the KB3054791 update regardless of the DPI setting. I did try updating the video drivers on one of the affected computers and that made no diffrence. I'm still not sure what the correlation is between computers that are affected and computers that are not affected. It's very perplexing.

  • Skype for Business not Updating Shortcuts - Pro Plus 2013

    Installing the Skype for Business update does not appear to update the start menu icons for Office 2013 Pro Plus, so we now have Skype for Business app but only shortcuts for Lync (which will launch Skype for Business when clicked).  In our environment
    we use the OCT to create an MST which moves the Office shortcuts at initial install, so I think this may be the issue. 
    Anyone else see this?  Office 2013 Pro Plus / Win 7 x64
    Thanks

  • Skype for Business - Cannot see shared screens, bu...

    I just started a new job and am required to use Skype for Business.  I downloaded Skype for Business 32 bit.  My PC is 64 bit but because I already have other Office 32 bit programs, I cannot install the 64 bit version.
    Everything in Skype for Business appears to work properly, except for the fact that I cannot see someone else's screen when they've shared it with me.  When someone shares their screen with me, all that I can see is the empty white box where their desktop should be.  When I share my screen with others, they can see my desktop correctly.
    What other information is needed to help diagnose this issue?  I really need this functionality in order to do my job properly.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I was using Lync as part of the offerings found on Office 365 and I was prompted to "upgrade" to Skype for Business and so I did per the suggestion.  Lync had screen sharing, Skype for Business currently does not have screen sharing!  This is a major dissapointment.  Who is the product manager and why the premature roll-out?  This is incredebly frustrating as most all my clients leverage Lync (their own install on their servers... have not upgraded yet.. lucky for them) and screen sharing is an important part of my interaction.  It took many of my clients a long time to master Lync and therefore, it is incredebly challenging to teach them how to use an alternative tool over the phone.  I feel incridebly duped.  My clients can share with me however, I cannot share with them.  What is the current timeframe for enabling (re-enabling) this functionality?  How can I get back Lync?   Is there a beta release of the next version?  Finally, how can this be called "Skype for Business" when a core aspect of the tool to conduct "business" had been stripped away without warning? 

  • Why am I getting the message "Your app isn't identified as a universal app in the Store." when I have already associated my Windows Phone app to my Windows Store app?

    I associated two Windows Phone apps to their respective Windows Store apps yet one of them is giving me this message on the pricing tab...
    "Your app isn’t identified as a universal app in the Store. Publish a Windows app with the same name, and you’ll enable the universal app icon, with all the associated benefits. If you’ve already published a related Windows app, this icon may not 
    be appearing because of restrictions you’ve set on your app.
    Learn more about  these restrictions."
    I have checked under "Learn more" and I am meeting all the requirements for the icon to show.  Please help as I really think having this icon on the Phone store will help downloads and I want my users to know there is a Windows partner app.

    I downloaded the new OS X Yosemite.
    Not sure what you mean by new, since Yosemite was released about 9 months ago.
    When i  try to open it i get this message, The version of iPhoto installed on this Mac is not compatible with OS X Yosemite.
    iPhoto version 9.6.1 is the latest version of iPhoto that is compatible with Yosemite. If you're just now updating to Yosemite from an older version of OS X, then you may have missed your window of opportunity to upgrade iPhoto to the latest version.
    So i go to the Mac App Store i get this message, "The item you've requested is not currently available in the U.S. store."
    With the release of the 3rd Yosemite update,10.10.3, which includes Photos, iPhoto is no longer available for purchase.
    I would recommend that you use Photos.

  • Skype for Modern Windows and Skype for Windows Desktop on a tablet???

    Hi All. I am a newby here so please be patient I have a 6 month old Toshiba Encore that comes installed with "Skype for Modern Windows". When I opened Skype today I received an advice/advert saying that this service will cease July 7 and I should uninstall and update to "Skype for Windows Desktop". News flash.... I have a tablet and it is telling me to install a Desktop version? Is this correct, dispite that my device is a (Windows 8.1) OS tablet, am I still required to make the conversion? Any advice most appreciated.  

    And just in case your next question is "Why". I am just a user like you so no inside knowledge but from what I have read it is partly down to the "Modern" version actually being based on "Old" tech, so it couldn't intergrate with the cloud based future of Skype and partly down to it isn't probably worth fixing (It had a lot of issues that I could see). Unfortunatly for some it is a bit inconvenient that it's being killed off before Windows 10 is released. The one thing I liked about the "Modern" version was the intergration with for example your contacts in the people app, but if you uninstall (Or when it gets killed off in a couple of weeks) you lose that intergration. I know you still have it in Outlook with intergration for the desktop version but to be honest Outlook isn't great on a seven inch tablet either. From my understanding when 10 is finally here and Skype catches up there will be full Skype intergration with your contacts again (Although I could be wrong and that is for the WP). Anyway, I for one would love MS to consider the universal app idea based on the WP version for smaller or all tablets. Maybe someone from Skype will reply?
