One of the presentations at Ignite mentioned that presence is now shared between Teams and Skype4b, but that doesn't seem to be the case.  If I am logged in to Teams only, users of Skype4b see me as offline.  

Is this shared presence supposed to be working now, or is this one of those things that isn't quite in production yet?

It's not yet, but is part of the roadmap. The release notes in T-Bot will help you know when it arrives, but I don't think that feature will be available for a little while yet.

If I was a betting man, this will be rolled out with the new admin center along with the ability to do the side-by-side , etc. migration from S4B to Teams etc. so probably end of yearish. 

I was seeing this yesterday as being available. I've put together a quick blog post here.http://www.graham-walsh.com/2017/10/microsoft-teams-and-skype-for-business/

Did this just roll out for you? I'm still seeing same Presence behavior with Teams. Curious how you know there is a difference? 

I could swear that the presentation at Ignite said it was already active, but perhaps they misspoke or I misunderstood.  

 

Thanks

Na it's not pushed yet. Once we get the admin center I think is when they will fire this up. Or maybe when the PSTN calling comes online, but right now presence isn't connected, Teams will constantly be sitting away when your not using it, vs. Skype for Business will show available because you are doing things on your and not idle. 

This is on a test tenant I setup in EMEA, but it is also working on our main tenant in EMEA too.

This is due (end of) Q1 2018 for reference, from the roadmap today, with unified presence. 

Yeah, saw that, was hoping it would make the Q4 release. oh well, still just happy with all this stuff coming to the product, can't complain :). 

Hmm... is that a delay? 

 

Where do you see the target date?  I don't see that info on the O365 roadmap... 

ahh, thanks.

Based on this PDF, unified presence is targeted for end of Q1 2018, which is around the corner. Not holding my breath, but I hope they deliver soon. I'm sick of having to use S4B AND Teams in my business, as it has slowed down the adoption of Teams too.

So fr they have pretty on point with releases with this roadmap so I got a feeling with the March updates we’re going to see a lot of things lighting up.

Well Q1 has passed and as far as I know none of the promised points have been released

  • Contact Groups
  • Unified Presence
  • Federated Chat between Teams and Skype for Business
  • Import Contacts from Skype for Business
  • Skype for Business Interop with Persistent Chat

So has there been any updates in regards to this? Updated roadmap? Eta for features?

BOOM! -> https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/What-s-new-in-Microsoft-Teams-April-upda... It would seem that federation is taking a little longer, but is under development.
This still isn't working for me. Is it working for other people? This is holding back adoption significantly.
