Can help in a pinch
Skype for business is a neat app and does have it's uses. However, there are a lot of things that need to be addressed. IM don't always appear, more often than not I'll see the preview of the IM from my lock screen but when I open the app it is like it never existed, until I get the missed conversation email. I could be actively typing a msg to a co-worker if they send me a msg it doesn't appear in conversation but rather in my email again. The one thing I do like about this app is it lets look up coworker contact info away from my desk.
Reliable and Efficient
I really enjoy the Skype App. It allows me to quickly reach out to coworkers while I'm on the go. It also makes me available for contact at any time which does wonders for my customer service. I can't recall a time where the app has failed me. Highly recommended.
New updates have fixed many bugs. Really like. Wing able to join and see the meeting content. But you will lose messages. The app doesn't seem to keep conversations very reliably. Works great if you are in the app but if you leave the app it loses and fragments conversations. Many times i have to refer to the notification to see what the message said because it's missing from the skype conversation. Needs work
