Microsoft unveiled plenty of new developments and upgrades during last month’s Ignite conference, but one that shocked many users is what’s happening to Skype for Business. The tech giant confirmed that they are phasing out Skype for Business and going all in on their new collaboration platform, Microsoft Teams.
When it comes to technology, Microsoft and Google have competed in almost every front. Both have made huge strides in machine learning, cloud computing, and productivity software. And in terms of VoIP solutions, both tech powerhouses are also neck and neck.
The latest announcement from Microsoft is an extension of its new and beloved Insider Programs. If you are a Skype user — whether for business, personal use, or both — then this new program just might be for you. Android, iOS, OS X, and Windows users can join the Skype Insider Program and gain access to benefits and features not available to the average Skype user.
