Skype for Business Retirement January 17

On Sunday, January 17, Information Technology Services (ITS) will retire Skype for Business at Mason in preparation for Microsoft’s planned retirement of the service in early 2021.

Any meetings you have scheduled to use Skype for Business will automatically be converted to Microsoft Teams. This change will not impact MasonLive. If you currently use the Skype for Business desktop app, ITS recommends you download the Microsoft Teams desktop app, which is available in Mason Self Service (Mac) or Software Center (Windows) on Mason-managed devices.

Visit Microsoft for more details on the changes to Skype for Business, and see Microsoft Teams for training and information about Microsoft Teams.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the ITS Support Center at 703-993-8870
