Help and Resources: Skype for Business

Microsoft has announced that they will be replacing Skype for Business with Teams on July 31, 2021. We strongly recommend switching to Teams for your chat, remote meeting, and online collaboration needs. Please review Microsoft's FAQ on how to upgrade from Skype for Business to Teams.

Installing Skype for Business

Skype for Business is available as a standard part of Office 2016 for destkop/laptop computers and as a separate mobile app. (Skype for Business is not the same as Skype.)

  • Desktop/laptop - make sure you have the latest version of Office 2016
  • Mobile - Go to the app store for your mobile device and search for "Skype for Business."
    • iOS
    • Android
    • Windows Mobile
    • NOTE: The first time you launch the mobile app, it will ask you to log in to complete the setup. The Skype for Business app does not use the standard OHIO login screen, but you still should use your full OHIO email address and OHIO password to log in.
