- Contacts and presence – See whether a contact is offline or online, whether they’re busy, in a meeting or available, and easily start an IM conversation.
- Peer-to-peer (P2P) calling – Call other Skype for Business users directly using voiceover IP.
- Group video calling – Now you can see up to four meeting participants simultaneously.
- Conversation history – View a list of previous conversations and restart them at will.
