Today, the Office team announced in a blog post:

A few weeks ago, we announced the technical preview of the Skype for Business client, and today, we’re thrilled to announce that the new Skype for Business client is now rolling out as part of the April monthly update for Office 2013! In addition, Skype for Business Online is now rolling out to Office 365 customers worldwide, and we expect the roll out to be complete by the end of May.

Skype for Business provides the same level of security as the Lync client, but with a new look and feel that will be familiar to Skype users. It will automatically replace Lync Online for Office 365 customers, but administrators can control when Skype rolls out for their users. For admin information, please see Controlling the Client Experience with Skype for Business.

Here at the BetterCloud Monitor, we’ll provide some tips and tricks on Skype for Business once it is rolled out to all. In the meantime, check out this quick preview from Skype for Business:
