Skype for Business service end of life – switch to MS Teams


Published: 13Jan2021

Support for Skype for Business will be ending by summer 2021. For communications with McGill parties, including text messaging, audio and video calls, virtual meetings and filesharing, we recommend using Microsoft Teams.

For anyone currently using Skype for Business to make phone calls, we will soon be announcing plans for a new softphone solution. Stay tuned for further announcements in the coming weeks.

We recommend you disable Skype for Business from launching automatically when you start up your computer.
