Teams Roadmap released

I noticed thanks to Mark Vale the Teams roadmap was released detailing the roadmap for Microsoft Teams for messaging, meetings and calling. This is eagerly waiting after the news from Ignite that Microsoft Teams will replace Skype for Business Online and this Roadmap gives us a vision into the roadmap and when Teams may have what you need to move over. The recommendation from Microsoft is try Teams now.

At the bottom of the post ive planned the roadmap out by quarters combing the messaging, meeting and calling roadmaps.

The Teams teams are going to be very busy but looking forward to the road ahead and the journey!

Interesting SfB interop with Persistent chat – will there be a migration tool ?

Great to see contacts groups, unified presence and mentions federated chat but wonder if thats only between Teams and SfB.

Skype for Business Online Phone Roadmap

Also there’s an update on IP Phone for Teams below that’s worth a read for their roadmap
