Our organization purchased only 100 o365 licenses, which is less than 500. So all online users automatically become TeamsOnly. I can't change TeamsOnly mode due to this microsoft policy https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4465277/microsoft-teams-now-the-primary-client-for-meetings....
Now, thanks to federation, on-premise SFB users may communicate with other tenants' Teams users. However, can't communicate with people who are in the same organization but online. And that is kinda stupid.
I hope that people will notice that o365 is much more convenient and purchase more o365 seats. One of the most amazing cloud features is Teams, it gives excellent collaboration experience. However, if online users can’t communicate with on-premise users, they won’t use Teams at all. Is there any possibility to let Teams users communicate with on-premise SFB users?

Hi @Аллдар Бухаев,
to allow your online and on-prem users to communicate with each other you have to configure SfB Hybrid.
This can be considered as a federation between online and your on-prem environment.
More details can be found here:

Thanks for response, I already configured the hybrid setup. And moved users online.
Now in my hybrid environment, there are online users and on-premise users, who can't communicate with each other. Online users are TeamsOnly (I described above), they may communicate only with online users. On-premise users may communicate only with on-premise users.

Thank you guys,
Microsoft support answered that to enable interop modes I need a tenant more than 500 seats.
How to let onpremise users communicate with online TeamsOnly users? I don't want to purchase online licenses for on-premise users.

I explained to support everything, and they replied:
"Teams only user cannot communicate with SFB on-prem user"
"New customers that have fewer than 500 seats can only use Teams only mode"
So now I am looking for a workaround.
