Skype for Business online services will be discontinued on 31 July 2021.
Existing Office 365 customers will not see any changes until this date. This means that support for Skype for Business will continue until the end of July and that new users can be added if required.
However, from 1 September 2019, new Office 365 customers will be equipped with Microsoft Teams—the new all-purpose collaboration solution for chats, meetings and video calls. Skype for Business Online will therefore no longer be available to new users in the Office 365 Suite.
The consumer version of Skype and Skype for Business Server are not affected and shall continue to be available.
