Microsoft Skype for Business PSTN conferencing from Microsoft allows anyone to join your Skype Meetings using only a telephone.

Microsoft announced some updates to Skype for Business this week. According to a blog post from Gurdeep Singh Pall at Microsoft Office Blogs there is a big focus on Mac integration.

“… the new Skype for Business for Mac will be available in October. The new client has been written from the ground up using the modern Mac programming language, Swift. It provides high-definition audio and video, in addition to features like one-click join for meetings and edge-to-edge video and desktop sharing to make full use of a screen.”

Gurdeep goes on to explain how Skype for Business calls on iOS will work exactly like any other cellular call on an iPhone.

“As part of our efforts to build deeper native integration on iOS and Android, we’re also pleased to be rolling out enhancements to the Skype for Business experience on iPhone staring in October. Using the Apple CallKit framework, Skype for Business calls now work just like a cellular call on your iPhone. You can accept a call via the lock screen or put a Skype for Business call on hold to take a cellular phone call—it works just like a phone. Both clients deliver a first-class Skype for Business experience to Mac and iOS users.”
