The telephony is being moved from Skype to Teams

In 2023, Umeå University will move its telephony from Skype to Teams in Microsoft 365.

Skype is one of the university's tools for making calls and arranging digital meetings. Microsoft will not continue to develop Skype and has chosen to develop telephony in Teams instead. Therefore, we will replace Skype with Teams in Microsoft 365.

Teams is already used by many to chat, have digital meetings and collaborate. Teams offers the same functionality for telephony as Skype.

Timetable for the move

In the fall of 2022, our e-mail will be moved to Microsoft 365. This is a prerequisite for us to be able to move our telephony.

More about the migration of e-mail

The move from Skype to Teams will take place in early 2023.

There will be more information about how the move is done and how telephony in Teams works.
