Microsoft Rebrands Skype Room Systems To Teams Room

Conference Room

The team is in! Microsoft is here with another rebranding job. This time, it has rebranded Skype Room Systems to Teams Rooms. And this is a change everyone can get behind, right?

Redmond has amped up focus on Teams lately, even as the service is prone to the occasional hiccups.

But that has not stopped users from transitioning to it in droves, with data confirming that usage of Microsoft Teams has skyrocketed in the past year or so.

No better time than now, to make some moves.

And as the announcement hints, the company is continuing to push all things Skype for Business under the Teas brand. The platform is still compatible with Skype, though, and users will still be able to use Teams Rooms to join Skype for Business meetings.

Teams Rooms is designed for all sizes of conference rooms, from huddle rooms to larger ones. The service controls conference calls with one-touch join, completely streamlining the process.

The first device announced to use Skype Room Systems was the Logitech SmartDock, which the company made official at Microsoft Ignite 2016 conference. It promises the same thing — one-touch entry to conference calls, as well as easier setup, better audio and video, and an uncomplicated UI.

And here we are.

The software titan has further confirmed that there have been over 130 million of meetings in Skype Room Systems, while Teams Rooms has also been deployed to over 2400 meeting spaces

Internally, that is.

But now that the usage is picking up, we can expect some big numbers as things fall under the Teams umbrella. Microsoft itself has more announcements in this regard at the Integrated Systems Europe event in February.

We may even get more partner devices.
