Skype contact status not updating
As an example, if you have a meeting currently scheduled in Outlook, your status appears as “In a meeting” in Skype for Business.
When you’re in a Skype for Business audio or video call, your presence indicator appears red, as Busy, and your status is updated to “In a call.” You can also manually set your presence status to include details you want others to see.
You can download these updates at Updates for Skype for Business Server 2015 and Updates for Lync Server 2013.
With the release of Skype for Business Server 2015 CU4 and Lync Server 2013 CU8 HF1, we will support Skype for Business on Mac as a desktop application.
First released in August 2003, Skype was created by the Swede Niklas Zennström and the Dane Janus Friis, in cooperation with Ahti Heinla, Priit Kasesalu, and Jaan Tallinn, Estonians who developed the backend that was also used in the music-sharing application Kazaa.
Microsoft bought Skype in May 2011 for .5 billion.
Skype division headquarters are in Luxembourg but most of the development team and 44% of all the division's employees are still situated in Tallinn and Tartu, Estonia.
Without Skype for Business Server 2015 CU4 (build 9319.272 or later) or Lync Server 2013 CU8 HF1 (build 8309.973 or later), Skype for Business on Mac requires Mobility enablement on the server side.
After updating to builds 9317.272 or 8309.973 or later, Mobility enablement will no longer be required.
