Microsoft Skype for Business Video Conferencing
“SKYPE FOR BUSINESS” was previously known as Microsoft Lync. The functions described below remain the same in Skype for Business as they were for LYNC. This information current through 8/21/2015 (regardless of the name used).
SKYPE FOR BUSINESS allows invited guests to join a video conference meeting or hearing, by simply clicking on a hypertext link sent to the invited guest in an email or Outlook Calendar invitation. The invited guest simply clicks on the link, allows the web app to install (if not previously installed), then provides a “refer to me as” name when joining the video conference as a guest.
Join the Skype for Business meeting AS A GUEST (without a license)
JOIN AS A GUEST USING THE FREE WEB APP.
If you don’t have Lync/Skype for Business installed, you can join by using Lync/Skype for Business Web App. It installs and opens automatically when you use the meeting request to join a meeting from a computer or hand-held device that doesn’t have Lync/Skype for Business already installed, and it connects you to the meeting as a GUEST. For further details, see Join an online meeting with Skype for Business Web App.
FREE Web Apps for Skype for Business/Lync are available for iOS (Apple) systems Windows 8 (Source Notebooks) and Droid systems. Just download the App from the device’s App Store. Having the App pre-installed on your hand-held device or tablet may make joining the meeting and sending and receiving video and audio somewhat easier. Visit the the iTunes or Google Play stores for the free Lync/Skype for Business app.
THE FIRST TIME YOU JOIN A SKYPE FOR BUSINESS VIDEO MEETING/HEARING, CLICK ON THE MEETING HYPERLINK AND ALLOW TWO (2) TO THREE (3) MINUTES FOR THE FREE WEB APP TO INSTALL AND OPEN. WHEN USING THE WEB APP, ALWAYS JOIN AS A “GUEST.”
