8x8 provides calling with business phone system functionality. The close integration between Virtual Office and Skype for Business allows you to work from Skype for Business while taking advantage of the call management and quality of 8x8 Virtual Office, enhancing your calling experience.

Via Call with 8x8, call a Skype for Business contact from your contact list or a chat window, or dial to reach any number. Your integration with Virtual Office immediately dials out, allowing for a seamless experience. Observe your Virtual Office contacts' presence status from Skype for Business, and coordinate efficiently from a single app. Virtual Office integration with Skype for Business offers this and much more.

Important: In order for integration with Microsoft to function, ensure that you are using a version that is compatible with your current version of the Virtual Office desktop app:
-For any version of the Virtual Office desktop app, download version 6.1 of the plug-in for calling with Skype for Business.
-For version 6 of the Virtual Office desktop app, download version 6.0 of the plug-ins for meetings with Outlook and calling with Outlook.
-For version 5 of the Virtual Office desktop app, download version 5.0.10 of the Microsoft Integration plug-in, which includes meetings and calling with Outlook, and calling with Skype for Business.

Important: At this time, only organizations that are new Skype for Business customers are upgraded to version 6 of the Virtual Office desktop app, and must install version 6.1 of the Skype for Business Virtual Office plug-in. If your organization is an existing Skype for Business customer, you continue to use version 5 of the Virtual Office desktop app, and can use versions 6.1 or 5.0.10 of the Microsoft Integration plug-in.
