As reported by The Verge, Microsoft has rolled out Skype-powered chat into it’s Word and Powerpoint apps.
Clearly, after the announcement that Lync was to become Skype for Work, Skype will be the one that survives the platform merge…
The move makes total sense for consumers…. but not so much for Enterprises.
So now the only question is how aggressively Microsoft will push you to “Go Skype” and just how well Skype actually “does business”. (Skype as recently as August had reported issues of “leaking chats”)
