iOS - Follow the steps in this article to install and sign in to Skype for Business on an iPhone or iPad. If you're prompted to allow the app to access your camera and microphone, choose Allow.

Android - Visit the Google Play Store to install Skype for Business on an Android phone or tablet. Once you have installed it, you can sign in with your account and follow the on-screen steps to grant permissions to use your camera and microphone.

macOS - See this article for important information about how to install, update, and then launch Skype for Business on macOS. If you are prompted to allow access to anything in Privacy Settings, choose Allow.
