What is the best way to continue to IM/Skype old coworkers once you leave a firm? I tried Skype and teams but seems the personal accounts don’t hook into business so they don’t get my messages. I realize we could text on phone but since we are computers all day, it’s nice to just IM as we did before. Any thoughts?

Team, What's your work from home setup for conference calls? 1. I have a Plantronics earpiece but both my clients and team have intermittently complained that I sound too far away. Not every call, but every 5th call. I suspect it might be due to my HP Elitebook. Any alternate setup without routing through my laptop directly? 2. I use Teams for almost all calls. For external calls, I switch to Skype. How do you all do it?
