What Functions Does the Skype for Business Provide?


Instant messaging (chat) lets you communicate quickly with colleagues via text. It can be used alone or in combination with other types of calls.

Teleconferencing (voice)

Voice teleconferencing is a basic communication tool. You can connect with one or more colleagues at the same time (up to 250 participants at a time).

Teleconferencing (video)

Video teleconferencing allows you to make a video call (i.e. face to face) privately with your colleague, with several colleagues, and with multiple users at once (so-called videoconferencing).

Desktop Sharing

During the call, it is possible to share your own PC desktop, the window of the selected program, the OneNote notebook or the PowerPoint presentation with the participants. All participants can watch what is happening on your computer.

Control Transfering

During the call, it is possible to give control over the desktop/program to other participants so that they can interfere with the display environment. This is useful, for example, when solving problems at a distance, a common presentation or a brainstorming session.

Call Recording

Audio and video calls and videoconferencing, including a shared PC desktop, can be recorded and saved as an audio/video file for later playback or sharing.
