Experience improvements in the Skype Meetings App (web)
Published Feb 09 2018 11:20 AM 3,843 Views

We’ve been doing some work on Skype Meetings App recently to update the user experience and fix some bugs. Skype Meetings App is the downloadable web app for joining Skype for Business meetings hosted in SfB Online. Skype for Business 2015 Server customers can also use Skype Meetings App for their meetings if they follow the steps outlined in this blog post.


This update brings the following improvements:


  • Simplified the dialog boxes that are shown when you close the meeting window.  We clarified the wording that confirms you want to leave the meeting and asks to save your settings for future meetings.
  • Fixed an issue affecting users who signed in with an Office 365 account and tried to join a meeting hosted by another organization.  If external connectivity (federation) was not established between the two organizations, the Skype Meetings App would unexpectedly close instead of joining the meeting.
  • Fixed an issue that preventing joining a meeting when the user joined from a server pool on a different domain
  • Worked with Apple to resolve issues that prevented viewing screen sharing on macOS High Sierra.
  • Fixed an accessibility issue with text colors in the app
  • Removed the link to the call quality survey web page that was shown at the end of every meeting. The old survey was deprecated and will be replaced in the future by a different quality rating experience.
  • Fixed some issues with displaying text in right-to-left languages.

The good news is that you don't have to go to any effort to get these updates. The improvements are made to the scripts that are automatically and silently downloaded when you run the web app, so all you have to do is join a meeting!
