The Skype for Business Mac team is excited to announce our last major release for 2017 is now available for download. This release includes the following changes, including several key features that customers have been waiting on for a long time!
Skype for Business on Mac will automatically update your status to indicate when you are in a meeting or busy based on your Outlook calendar. You can turn this off by clearing Update my status based on my calendar information in General page of Preferences dialog box.
When in a meeting or call, you can easily mute someone's microphone, make them a presenter or attendee, or remove them from the meeting. In the People list, select the user and then select the More Options (…) button.
You'll see a notification at the top of the window when you aren't connected to the Skype for Business server, and the buttons to start conversations and join meetings will be disabled.
When you miss an IM conversation, you can see the message text in the chat window even if your organization has disabled automatic archiving of IM messages.
Skype for Business on Mac will automatically close the call window when you hang up a person-to-person phone call as long as no one has sent IMs in the conversation.
If you are on macOS Sierra or later, your admin can monitor the Quality of Service (QoS) of your audio and video calls to keep your service running smoothly.
