When I make a Skype for Business call, does it use my mobile minutes?

The Voice Settings and Require Wi-Fi for video calls options let you choose if you want to use the Wi-Fi network or your cellular phone minutes for audio and video calls. When you turn on these options and a Wi-Fi connection isn’t available, Skype for Business tries to make the call by calling your mobile number instead. When you answer the incoming mobile call, you’re then connected to the Skype for Business call. As a result, your mobile minutes might be used. For more information, see Set general options for your Android device.

Can I see my conversation history on my Android device?

To see conversation history, this feature must first be turned on by your admin. The conversation history on Skype for Business for Android devices is synced with Microsoft Exchange. This means that conversations that occur on your Skype for Business mobile device will be displayed on your device’s conversation history and also on Skype for Business.

I was disconnected from a meeting. Is there an option to quickly rejoin the meeting?

Yes. If you have to temporarily leave a Skype for Business meeting or get disconnected for any reason, you can rejoin it by tapping Rejoin ( Rejoin meeting button in Skype for Business for Android ) in the notification. For more information, see Join a Skype for Business meeting.

How do I invite additional people to a meeting?

Tap the Add icon ( Invite participants button in Skype for Business for Android ), and then use search to add others (individuals or groups) to the meeting.
