Does Skype for Business for iOS have the same features as Lync 2013?

In the initial release of Skype for Business for iOS, some features that were in Lync 2013 are not yet available. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 3102247: Some Lync 2013 for iPhone/iPad features are missing in Skype for Business for iOS.

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

The Require Wi-Fi options for Voice, Video, and Meeting Content let you choose if you want to use the Wi-Fi network for audio and video calls. When you turn on Require Wi-Fi 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.

Can I see my conversation history on my iOS device?

The conversation history on Skype for Business for iOS devices is now synced with Microsoft Exchange. This means that conversations that occur on your Skype for Business mobile device will be displayed on that device’s conversation history and also on Skype for Business.
