We've had feedback about installing and using the Skype Meetings App to join Skype for Business meetings. We are excited to announce improvements to address these issues.
First a refresher: The Skype Meetings App, or SMA for short, is a web-downloadable meetings app for use when a Skype for Business desktop app is not installed on a Windows or Mac computer. SMA is available for meetings hosted on SfB Online or on SfB 2015 Server that is configured to use the online Microsoft Content Delivery Network (CDN). If your on-premises server is not configured to use SMA, see this blog post for info.
The first set of improvements is available now and will make the download and launch of SMA easier. Last week we released changes to the joining web pages you see when you click the link to join a meeting. The web pages ask whether to use a desktop app or SMA, and then help you download and launch SMA if you need it. The improvements include:
The second set of improvements fixes issues in Skype Meetings App itself and will be released over the next few weeks.
The third set of improvements are focused on improving reliability and providing a richer meeting experience for Mac users.
To use the Skype for Business for Mac desktop app to join meetings now, do the following:
We are excited to bring these improvements to you over the next two months. The dates for future releases are estimates, and we will give updates here when these improvements ship.
