Hello, everyone! I use Office 365 web apps frequently when I'm not in the office—I can't install full versions of Outlook, Excel, etc. on my personal computer (not Windows or Mac). That wasn't really a problem until this morning, when Outlook asked me to upgrade to the "new Outlook" on the web. I hit OK, and everything looked good...until I noticed that the Skype for Business icon is now missing in the upper-right navigation bar. Was this by design? I know Microsoft is phasing out Skype for Teams, but to just remove the web interface without warning? My company has been slow in migrating to Teams, and most of our users still use Sky for Business exclusively. How do I continue to use Skype for Business in the web interface?

Ah, yes. If I toggle back, the Skype for Business icons appear again in the navigation menu and in the new meeting options. I prefer the interface of the "new Outlook" for the web, but without Skype for Business, it's unusable for me.

Yes, there is no Skype for Business icon in the new experience, in favor of MS Teams. This is by design.

Hello @Kevin Crossman
What if the customer is using a SFB standalone plan 2? They have still not decided to adopt Teams and are on a Skype for Business Only Coexistence mode org wide. They are not seeing the "Add Skype Meeting" option in OWA when setting up a Calendar Event.
Can this be remediated by Support?

Did Microsoft take into account the amount of time that's required for a company to migrate from SFB to Teams? My company won't be done migrating to Teams until late 2020.

@Jon Cutting I'm not from Microsoft (just the messenger here...).
MS has been pretty aggressive about moving people to Teams. You might want to escalate your concerns to your Microsoft account team.
