  • Hi chapter 7,

    Skype allows users to communicate with any other Skype user for free via IM, voice, video and screen sharing, and conference calls for up to 25 people. Skype can be used for business but it best for small organizations or startups. it doesn’t have all the functionality of an enterprise phone system which is where Skype for Business comes in.

    Skype for Business encompasses all the same features: IM, voice, video,  screen sharing on all your devices, from any location. It has many more enterprise features which makes it capable of replacing an office phone system. Skype for Business allows for advanced call routing and handling that most businesses require. You can setup hunt groups, delegates, advanced forwarding options, and auto attendants, most of which is needed in a large enterprise setting.

    Details about this you could refer to the following blog: The Difference Between Skype and Skype for Business. You could also find more details in the following document: What's the difference between Skype, Skype Meetings, and Skype for Business? 

    Best Regards,
