I never had anyone pinging me on Teams... and did not know you could 🤣

If pinging on Skype is wrong... I never wanna be right lol

Why hasn’t your firm disabled the ability for you to ping via Skype internally? We still have the app, but can only use it if we need to communicate with a client still using Skype.

Yeah, I kind of liked Skype better. So much more lightweight. Not sure I need all the Teams features tbh.

Old habits die hard. I have status up on Skype asking people to not ping me there. Skype being a program at onset of a sunset, would no longer be supported soon. The data retention policy on Skype are crazy, if you miss a message you miss it completely. Teams atleast keeps IMs for 60-days, and gives me a chance to respond if I am not in front of my running PC during work hours.

I’ve had Skype on both android and iOS phones. On both I get notifications that I missed a ping but doesn’t actually show the message sent so I have to go back to people and ask them to repeat the message. Teams keeps a history of it and this is never a problem. Don’t know how to change this (new to Skype) but it makes me never use it

Bad take...skype is ol reliable

I don't even log in to skype anymore, nobody does
