Skype-to-Skype communication is a term we use to denote a direct connection between two Skype for Business clients for the purposes of voice, video, chat and/or desktop sharing.
Skype-to-Skype communication does not use the campus or public telephone network, so calls can only be made to other Skype for Business users at this time.
Skype for Business uses your primary KU email alias (also known as a SIP address or Skype for Business address) for log in and in place of a phone number for Skype-to-Skype voice calls.
Changing your primary email address (Skype for Business login) can cause issues with Skype for Business' "presence" function and with reoccurring Skype for Business online meetings you have already scheduled.
