Phase One of Microsoft's all new Skype for Business for Macs is now Available to IT Administrators for Preview
Microsoft has introduced a Public Preview of Skype for Business for Mac. Commercial customers can request an invite to test the Mac client. The preview will release in three cumulative stages leading to public availability, planned for the third quarter of 2016. Today's initial release lets you see and join your meetings.
The introduction video reviews the new modern user interface, the Skype Meeting experience and talks about the client from the ground up.
To get started, IT administrators can sign up their organization by visiting the Skype for Business Preview site. Each day, Microsoft will issue invitations to IT administrators, with the goal of extending invitations to everyone in the coming weeks. Once an IT administrator downloads the preview client, they can manage its distribution to end users within their organization.
