Hi All,

Is there any license requirements (E1,E3,E5,F1)for enabling "Skype for Business Audio conferencing license" add on?

Our client has O365 F1 and E1 licenses and they want to enable "Audio conferencing license".

Regards,

Saikrishna M

You have to have a license that includes creating meetings in Skype for Business (or Teams when they move to Teams) to be able to add Audio Conferencing Add-On License. F1 does not include that, with a F1 license you are allowed to join meetings but not create them.

Creating meetings is included in E1 (and E3, E5) so with this license you can buy the Add-On for Audio Conferencing.

You also have the option to use Communication Credits with E1, E3 and E5. When this is assigned to a user they can use dial-in in their meetings and you will pay per minute for each caller that calls in to a meeting. This could be cheaper if you have users that only hosts a few meetings per month with few dial-in callers.
