Skype for Business includes powerful support for audio/video conversations and meetings. Find out how we built a complete “Virtual Consult” facility for doctors, and how you can weave the power of audio/video conversations into your own apps.

Dynamic Guest Access (preview)

Today Microsoft is extending the value of the Skype Developer Platform with a collection of new capabilities designed to support an important scenario with broad application across a range of industries – remote advisors connecting over real-time voice and video with external customers using the power of Skype for Business and Office 365.

More info: Build Remote Advisor solutions with Skype for Business.

Providing a secure and reliable Remote Advisor experience to customers outside of your organization requires two key elements – seamless integration with your existing customer identity system, and dynamic control over how your trusted applications can authorize those users to access Skype for Business Online. Today we’re excited to announce the first extension of the Skype Developer Platform to support trusted applications in Skype for Business Online with a public preview of the Skype Developer Platform – Dynamic Guest Access feature.

Dynamic Guest Access builds on a REST-based API that enables developers to facilitate meeting scheduling and authorize users to access Skype for Business Online resources using secure, session-based tokens. Dynamic Guest Access works together with the Skype Web SDK, App SDK, and UCWA to enable Remote Advisor and other business-to-consumer solutions.
