The NHSmail live service will be upgrading the Skype for Business web application on the 19th October 2019, to offer a better user experience when joining a Skype for Business meeting via a web browser.
The new update will ensure the latest web application plug-in is always used and provides:
- simplified meeting joining
- optimised screen display
- the option to save meetings settings – display name and audio preference.
The plug-in does not require administrative rights for installation.
The update has minor changes with regards what users will see when joining a meeting as per the screenshots below:
