Hi there,

I have added external user as a guest to Microsoft Teams Channel. I need that somehow that guest user can use Skype application to communicate with my Microsoft Teams channel. Please give me some useful suggestions

Hi @ShafqatR

Unfortunately, there is none. Skype for Business and Teams doesn't interact in that way.

That guest user will need to log into your tenant to work in your Team.

The only way Skype for Business or Skype can communicate with Teams is through federated chat via the Teams Chat App. Is it private chat and not to do with the Teams themselves

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
