Teams is replacing Skype for Business with new installs and rolled to monthly and semi-annual targeted updates of ProPlus. Semi-annual customers will get this update starting Jan 14, 2020, check out more here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/teams-install#what-about-office-365-plans-that-dont-in...  @Christopher Hoard

The same article states

Skype for Business will continue to be installed with new installations of Office 365 ProPlus, unless you configure your installation to exclude it.

I guess it is more asking when will be no longer be included in Pro Plus. Would this be the date of Skype for Business online's retirement (July 31st, 2021)?
