If you want to install and use the Skype for Business app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:


Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App >> . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software Here >>


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Skype for Business in the search bar and press Search. Click on Skype for Businessapplication icon. A window of Skype for Business on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Skype for Business for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Top Pcmac Reviews

  • Slow! Needs more features.

    By Randall King (Pcmac user)

    First problem: I rely on the "Conversation History" folder in Outlook to find *all* of my SfB chats, not just the ones I happened to have on my Windows PC. It stinks that this app can't sync those and add them to my mailbox folder somehow. Microsoft decides the features put into Exchange Online, Skype for Business Server 2015, and this SfB mobile app; there is no reason that they can't make it work. Second problem: The app is *slow*. People's presence information takes 30 seconds, or usually several minutes, to update. That should not happen. It's instantaneous in the Windows app. Same sort of delays happen with changing my presence (status), changing forwarding settings, etc. Makes the app unusable. It's faster to use RDP and access the client through my Windows PC remotely! Third problem: When I'm placing a new call, why disable the speakerphone button?! This app requires that the call be connected first, and then I can enable speaker. But, that requires that the other party wait on me before the conversation can begin. Microsoft misses details like this. Stupid. One example of many quality problems with their software.
  • Audio issues on iPhone 8

    By Fixaudio (Pcmac user)

    I have to use Skype for work and don’t really have any issues with the app itself. However, I switched to an iPhone 8 recently from Samsung S5 and am noticing issues with Skype audio quality on the iPhone. The Skype call volume on speaker and headset is very low even at maximum volume. The audio volume works fine on the phone for regular phone calls and it seems to be an issue with Skype only. Since there is no option to provide feedback from the app like outlook I have written this review hoping for a fix.
  • Just a bit more effort

    By Messthebeast (Pcmac user)

    The reason this app gets one star is because it doesn't sync up with skype on one's computer. This is the simplest most basic piece of functionality a messaging app should do. If I send a message from my phone to a coworker, I should be able to see it on my computer. If I receive a message on my phone from a coworker, read it, then wish to respond via computer, the message USUALLY DOES NOT SHOW UP ON THE COMPUTER. Highly frustrating, Groupme has been doing this for years guys, literally years. Edit: So I originally stated the syncing issue was my only qualm. I was sorely misguided. This app has continued to disappoint repeatedly. I’m currently traveling internationally and simply unable to connect via WiFi (note groupme connects rapidly). It’s comical how bad this app is and I laud the developers who created it for how little they cared. I desire to someday care so little about what I do and yet still have it published for thousands to use. It will be the greatest practica joke of my life. I have written maybe 10 reviews total in my tenure as an Apple user. This app holds first place for two reviews under my name.
  • Unreliable, poorly designed bucket of frustration

    By Atreyu8 (Pcmac user)

    The product owners for this app must be incompetent, careless, or both. Skype for business is unreliable, slow, confusing (does the crossed out mic that is gray mean mute is on? Oh wait, tap the button and now mute is on... no wait people can hear me... so mute is on when this button is off), annoying because if you are the meeting creator, Microsoft made the decision to unmute you by default when you join the meeting even though all it takes is one experience in a typical conference room to see how people often dial into a conference room phone first so then there is always awful feedback when the meeting creator joins... basically it’s like Microsoft has never even observed how people actually use Skype and instead just insist it should be used their way and could care less. It’s exactly like every other Microsoft product so I’m not surprised, but this one is particularly bad.
