Linux Sky Application for “Skype for Business”

Yes! As started to spend time learning Linux I found this Linux application that allows me to use my Office365 account and share my desktop to other users using “Skype for Business”. I find this very interesting now that I could use this application to setup online presentations right off my Linux system.

But, definitely is oriented for business organization that can afford the paying an annual fee of $45/per user activation. In the meantime, you can test this application which is limited a 2 minute limit on each call or screen share. They will send you a key to use within 24 hours.

Another missing feature, if you compare it to “Sky for Business”, is the session recording capability.  I mean, still is a great Linux app that will connect to you Skype members.

I can tell that their technical support will answer questions promptly and their email response was very good. They can also help and discuss any arrangement in order to get you going.

For now, their application only support domain users. But, I was told, that support for non-domain users will be available soon.

Installation was a challenge for me. Just because I’m not a Linux expert but I manage the figured out what was needed to complete the installation on my Ubuntu 16.04.1 desktop. They offered any Sky installation for various Linux distro.

Check out the images!  I think this product has potential for connecting Windows and Linux users.

I’m hoping to be able to at least do one of my Florida PowerShell User Group meeting with this product.
