Barely a fortnight after unveiling the preview of Skype for Business, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is sounding the alarm that it is ready for the future, with a clear vision of taking messaging on PC’s and other devices to another new level. The Redmond-based company believes it can take the Skype messaging platform to wrists, and giant displays in offices, while also being used to translate calls on the fly.

Microsoft Vision

A newly uploaded video showcases Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s vision while introducing new concepts like simple data sharing on Skype and the ability to have two-way meetings. Most of these new concepts are already taking shape with products like Microsoft Hub and HoloLens headsets already on fly mode.

Surface hub, for example, with its 84-inch screen display, comes with Skype built in it, as well as new ways of holding meetings on a number of devices. HoloLens is one of the developments that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) believes will have an impact on the way people communicate in the near future. Having already tested out a Skype demo in January with HoloLens, the company affirms it was impressed with the outcome of the entire concept.

The final results of the Skype push are sure to show Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s obsession with cross-platform compatibility, as the company looks to be in as many devices as possible. The business oriented version of Skype emphasizes Microsoft’s desire to focus on corporations as a key source of revenue and customers.

Skype for Business

You’ve probably used Skype for chatting with friends and family, but now Microsoft is taking it to another level with the unveiling of Skype for Business, designed for the working environment.

The platform was designed to expand Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Lync communication platform, allowing users to search, connect and chat with other Skype users. Skype for business will also be integrated with Microsoft Office to ensure instant messages, as well as voice and video calling, are all accessible within MS Office.

CEO, Satya Nadella has been on a mission to transform the company into one that emphasizes productivity, not just in devices, but also in the delivery of services.
