Skype for Business chat window not appearing for receiver

Hello,

I am in the process of enabling Skype for Business in Salesforce. When i send someone a message, they get a notification in Office 365 but there is no chat box that appears for them in SalesForce.

Am i missing a permission here? is this how it is supposed to work? I imagine that the box shown below is supposed to appear for my users as a message gets sent to them but i could be wrong

Hi Alex,

Please try the following.


Click on Help > About Skype.  If the version number it shows isn't already the latest, 5.8.0.154, update via the installer from this link:
 
http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full
 
If the problem still happens, try this:
 
Quit Skype.  Hold the Windows key and type r.  In the box that comes up type
%appdata%\Skype <enter>.  Find the folder with your Skype name and double click to open it.  Find file config.xml and delete it.
 
Restart Skype and see if IM's look normal.

regards,
Roshni

I assume your answer pertains to the Skype for Business app, which does notify me of a received message. 

I am just wondering why we have to use a Desktop app to make this messaging system work.

I know this is just a Beta but can i expect that with the new update, when i send a message within salesforce using the chat window that the same chat window will appear for the recipient of the message?
