What's the difference between Skype, Skype Meetings, and Skype for Business?

Skype that you use at home is great for smaller businesses of up to 20 employees. It is free to use, unless you want to buy credit to make calls to landlines and mobiles

Skype Meetings enables you to connect with your team for free. You can collaborate with up to 10 people at once (up to 3 people after 60 days) using group HD web conferencing, from any device or operating system. You can share screens, use the laser pointer or a collaborative whiteboard. Meeting organizers also have access to professional controls such as the ability to mute or unmute participants. This service is currently only available to people in the United States.

Skype for Business lets you add up to 250 people to online meetings, provides enterprise-grade security, allows you to manage employee accounts, and is integrated into your Office apps. It costs $2 per month, per user.
