One thing I noticed that was a little surprising at first was the location of the ‘Joining conference calls, Join meeting audio from’ dropdown in the Skype for Business client. For those of you that do not know, this dropdown controls your defaults for how you join a conference, and whether you want to choose a device before joining a meeting. To save you the suspense its been moved. Far away. The images below show the different locations:

In the Lync 2013 client, you set this in Options, Phones, and the at the bottom you see ‘Joining conference calls’.


So how about the sexy new Skype for Business client?

Well, lets see…

It’s in Phones just like the Lync Client. Oh wait. While this setting is identical in each client, the location is not. In the Skype for Business client,

It’s now in the ‘Skype Meetings’ tab. Why was it never in the ‘Lync Meetings’ tab previously? No one will ever know now.
