Master Placing Calls in 1 minute

Skype for Business

Skype for Business is a powerful collaboration tool that allows you to instantly communicate with colleagues, either in the office next door or around the world. You can interact using instant messages, voice or video calls, or meetings. In this week's lesson, we'll see how easy it is to use voice calls to strike up a conversation and get things accomplished!

Place Calls

You can place voice calls to other Skype for Business users right from the program without needing another device, and you can also call regular phone numbers with the dial pad.
