Starting Oct. 1, 2018, Skype for Business online will no longer be included in Office 365 for new customers with fewer than 500 seats
We recently announced that the roadmap for bringing Skype for Business Online features and functionality into Microsoft Teams is now complete. Teams now delivers a complete set of messaging, meeting, and calling capabilities.
Beginning October 1, 2018, Skype for Business online will no longer be included in Office 365 for new customers that have fewer than 500 seats. Tenants that are already using Skype for Business online will be able to continue to do this (including provisioning new users) until they complete their transition to Microsoft Teams.
Office 365 Business Premium customers who purchase subscriptions after October 1, 2018 through retail stores can access Skype for Business through the admin portal or by contacting Customer Support.
This support article will be updated over time.
