Skype for Business will be upgraded to Microsoft Teams

Last night, a couple of Office 365 users received the following popup in the portal that Skype for Business is now Microsoft Teams and they should start using Teams:

In the Office 365 Admin Portal, MC118018 was published by Microsoft and later removed, stating that they are starting to upgrading Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams.

The notice stated that for now, this is an opt-in experience, so it’ls not an immediately change by Microsoft, but as an action is required by 2018-09-07 it sure looks like you will be forced to upgrade.

There have not been an official announcement from Microsoft, yet but as Microsoft Ignite is less than a month a way we might see a few new announcements there and one of them might be that Skype for Business will be upgraded to Microsoft Teams.
