Changes to Skype for Business dial-in

To better serve the university, IT Solutions is removing the "dial in" option for Skype for Business meetings effective Friday, Nov. 15. 

 

What does this mean? 

When you create a new Skype for Business meeting (either in Outlook or through the skypescheduler), you will no longer see the dial-in options. Further, if meeting attendees/students had been using those dial-in numbers to join Skype for Business meetings, those connections will not work as of Nov. 15. 

 

What's next? 

We encourage the community to explore Google Meet as a replacement option. Use Hangouts Meet to hold video meetings with people inside or outside of Texas Woman's University. 

Participants can join from a computer, mobile device or phone. Participants either need the Meet mobile app or a supported web browser; a GSuite account is not required. When you start or create an event for a video meeting, a phone number and PIN is automatically added to the meeting. Anyone can use the number to dial in. 

During a meeting, you can share your screen, chat and turn on live captions. You can even record your Meet. 

Some limitations of Google Meet include 100 maximum guests per meeting and some compatibility issues with latest Mac OS (Catalina). Meet works best in the Meet app or on the Chrome browser.
