Skype for Business Client Software

To use the full functionality of Skype for Business you need to install a suitable version.  

Please see the following download links for desktop and laptop clients - instructions vary depending on whether your mailbox is on Exchange or Office 365.  Microsoft have not rebranded every client as Skype for Business yet.  Some clients may still be called "Lync".

Note: If you are already using Microsoft Office 2013 (PC) you will have Skype for Business as part of the Office Suite.
