Microsoft Teams is now a complete meeting and calling solution

Last year we announced plans for Microsoft Teams to become the primary client for Intelligent Communications in Office 365, replacing Skype for Business Online over time. Today, we are pleased to announce we have completed our roadmap for bringing Skype for Business Online features and functionality into Teams, and Teams is ready to meet your messaging, meeting and calling needs.

The Article sounds great, and Microsoft Teams is a very good solution! But a few things are (still) missing!

First a wrap-up of the issue itself:

  • The Microsoft Teams Clients sets my Skype for Business presence to available (green) as soon as I start it
  • When I manually set myself to busy or do not disturb (Both should indicate red) it stays with available (green) as Skype for Business presence
  • If I place a phone call or join a meeting in Microsoft Teams (Yep, I use¬†Microsoft Teams more and more) the Skype for Business presence is still available (green)
    Chats and calls from Skype for Business arrive on my (iOS based) Smartphone Client, because I don’t start the Skype for Business Client all the time (anymore).

This could causes noticeable delays when you sign in the client, especially if the client tries to connect to Skype for Business Online.

Microsoft published some Updates and a UC Lobby Blog article about that. There is also a Support article about that.

In the UC Lobby Blog article contains a the following:
