The January release of Skype for Business on Mac (version 16.14) packs a lot of features and fixes that customers have been waiting for. The latest monthly release of the Mac app delivers the following changes:
If your organization has disabled automatic archiving of IM messages and server-side conversation history, you were limited to having each chat open a new top-level window . . . until now! All users now have the option to choose between seeing chats in a single, tabbed window or in separate windows. You can switch between single-window and multi-window modes with the Show conversations in separate windows checkbox in the General page of Preferences.
Choose the size that someone's shared screen is displayed in your meeting or call by selecting Fit Content to Window or View Content Actual Size from More Options (…).
When your organization has disabled server-side conversation history, Skype for Business on Mac will automatically accept IM conversations no matter how long you have been away from your computer so that you can see the messages when you return.
Skype for Business on Mac will display a warning indicator on the app icon in the Dock when the app is signed out or not able to reach the Skype for Business server so users can easily tell when they are offline.
When you click Join, connect to your meetings significantly faster and with fewer failures.
