If you have a scheduled Skype for Business meeting in your calendar you will be click the Join button in Teams, this will open an web browser that allows you to join the meeting with Skype for Business web application or with Skype for Business Windows application if that is installed on your computer. But the meeting won't open inside your Teams client.
When you click the join button you will get this option (if you have not installed the web app before)
After you installed the Web App (small msi) you will be able to join the meeting in the SfB web app.

Yes, you will be able to. Ask your admin to configure the Skype Meetings App in Teams admin center. Once you set up a preferred apps as Skype for business, when you click on the Skype invite link would automatically opens in teams
Hope this helps, if you prefer not to use skype at all .. use the Island mode.

The Skype for Business Web App is pretty good, I've been using it a lot the last 6 months after been running in TeamsOnly mode.

@Thuyavan Ganesan we set teams only for some users, but even then, they will have to open Skype for business meetings with the Skype for business web app. Teams won't work.

Actually SfB is being phased out, can't remember the exact date but sometime in 2021 I think it was, SfB will be gone

@AKIMF is there not reported in the USER VOICE?
I consider this as a serious problem that Microsoft will NOT allow these meeting to be made through Teams, until the use of Skype ends in 2021...

Hello @Pedro_Fraile There is a Uservoice item on this but it has very few votes and as noted above, since Skype is being phased out it's unlikely much will be done: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/37656112-join-skype-meetings-f...
