Download and install Skype for Business Basic. When you click the Download button on the page, you will be prompted to choose the download that matches the edition of your other Office applications (32-bit edition or 64-bit edition). If you don't know, choose 32. The installer will check the edition for you. Drag the Skype icon to the “Applications” folder. The icon to drag is the blue cloud with a white “S” inside. Skype is now installed. Once installed, you'll find the Skype icon (a blue cloud with a white “S”) on the Launchpad, and in the Applications folder. Follow the on-screen instructions to sign in. If the Skype for Business app still doesn't work, this issue could be related with your network environment of your Mac device. So kindly check if the meeting required ports are opened and listened. Meanwhile, you can try to open Mac in safe mode to check if the issue persists.
