Call your IU colleagues with Microsoft Teams

Did you know you can make phone calls directly from your computer in Microsoft Teams? As IU makes the switch from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams (Microsoft is phasing out Skype for Business by the end of 2023), it’s a good time to get comfortable calling in Teams.

Teams calling is limited to internal IU calls for now, but stay tuned for worldwide calling.
