Use Skype for Business without having a Skype Business Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I need to make a call and screen sharing with a customer who uses Skype for Business.

    As far as I know, screen sharing won't work within the free version (that I am using) and the Business version. Can i buy and use a single license of Skype for Business without having a Skype for Business server?

    Which steps should I follow to use it?

    Thank you, bye.

  • Hi davide

    If your environment is online, you don’t need to deploy Skype for Business Server by yourself. You can use Skype for Business  to make online calls to other people and have a meeting(screen share)in your business if you have Office 365 Business Premium. You can purchase it from this link:

    https://products.office.com/en-sg/business/office-365-business-premium?rtc=1&activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab

    Based on my knowledge, Skype for Business Online is part of the Office 365 suite of services. To set up Skype for Business Online, you need to sign in to Office 365 and then set up your domain and users.

    For more details, you can refer to the following guidance:
