Microsoft Bookings has recently come to my attention as Bookings will integrate with Teams and Skype meeting capabilities. This will enable businesses to set up services with online Skype/Teams meeting enabled. A meeting link will be added to the booking invite which customers can use to join the appointment.
This feature is being rolled out Worldwide (Standard Multi-Tenant), Online, Exchange, Education tenants.
