I am happy to announce our first update for the new Skype for Business on Mac client just 3 weeks after the announcement of general availability. The enhancements in this update will include:
– Contact group management features for Office 365 / Skype for Business Server 2015 customers
– Contact tagging for status changes
– Improvements to meetings reliability, sign-in, and chat
Microsoft is committed to enhancing the Skype for Business on Mac client at a regular pace. To read more about these updates, see (and save as a favorite!) our What’s New Office article.
We have made some changes to how Single/Tabbed Windows now work in the client – in some cases we allowed users to configure even when your architecture did not support it. This often lead to message delivery failures. We made the decision to remove this capability for those customers affected with this update. Some of you may not have the Single/Tabbed Window experience available now. We know this is a high interest feature – the team continues to work on this for future updates. Stay tuned.
To learn more about this or other items, please check known issues.
For customers who have already installed the client, The Microsoft AutoUpdate (MAU) will offer the update to you. If this is the first time you are installing, the client on the download center will be updated in the next few hours.
Please visit us at the Microsoft Technical Community to discuss this news as well as other Skype for Business on Mac client topics.
