Skype not available like old outlook
Skype is not available in the new outlook like it has earlier in the old outlook in the top right corner of the outlook.
Hey, thank you for your feedback! Skype is now available for all users. You should see the icon in the header of OWA.
Huh? No, just "Chat" which is just Teams. SfB is dead...and even if you see SfB now, kiss it goodbye within a year. So much for that!

can't found skype icon in old outlook
there is contacts section in Skype (new version)
I agree with comments below. As of now Skype is unusable. Please revert as soon as possible to previous version.
New Skype is pretty horrendous. I cant see who's online. I'd rather not use Skype than use this.

New Skype over outlook 365 Web sucks !!!
No Support to add multiple people to same chat.
Unable to see status of other users.
Offline/Away/Online Toggle does not work.
Microsoft, please revert to older design , this is really impacting daily work now.
Skype for business is not included in the new outlook web
Honestly, I can't even find the Skype. I can see I appear online in there top right, but I can't find any of my contacts etc. It wasn't signing in in the old version, so decided to see if the new worked any better.
Skype stinks. Won't update to avail. and shows as inactive everytime it is minimized. Before I could stay avail as long as I wanted. When I do maximize my email window, it stays inactive. Piece of garbage.

EVERY TIME I DO MINIMIZE FOR EMAIL SKYPE WAS TURN TO ( GO A WAY ) ?WOW ABOUT IF JUST KEEP ( AVAILABLE ) ? BECAUSE WE STILL WORKING ON THE EMAIL ..SO THAT MAKE THE TEAM KNOW WE CAN CONTINUE THE DISCUSSION .
I need my Skype button back!!
Skype is not available, even if it is appears no right (access) to work with it
As long as Skype is not working properly ( as in me being able to see my contacts and actually messaging them) I am forced to use the old interface. Which is a shame since I really like the look and feel of the new.

1) make the tab flash when a new chat is in
2) make popup notifications when someone chats to you that are visible even if the tab / window are not visible at the moment / minimized. Similar to Teams pop up notifications.
Where is skype?
We had Teams disabled, but MS decides Teams is a must, so WE WILL BE ASSIMILATED! If I wanted Snark, er, Slack, I'd use it, but we don;t and we do not want Teams either. We have other tools and all we want from MS is email and calendaring, and Skype, but now, we'll go with Zoom and Skype is disabled along with this Teams **** nobody asked for!
Strangely, it's not always missing?
In one tenant, where I opted-in right away, it still shows. In another, t he icon shows, but when I clickj it, it says Teams is ready, but the new UI is not forced on that tenant yet, and in yet another, peopl who are in beta or opted-in early can see SKype, but those who toggle to the new UI as of TODAY the Skype icon disappears (and reappears when toggled back to the old UI). Microsoft, WHAT THE...?!
SLOW IT DOWN and GET IT RIGHT and stop railroading all these changes half-baked, PLEASE!!!!! We have USERS TO SUPPORT and you make it WAY MORE DIFFICULT THAN NEEDS BE! This is ludicrous to explain, inexcusable to defend and confusing for those you are supposed to be SERVICING!
Skype needs to be fully implemented, and I need to be able to see my calendar. Without those features working the new O365 is unusable for me.
Skype did not work properly, i was not able to chat with people outside my company domain, what is working fine in old UI.
Unable to insert Skype Meeting in web app calendar :(
