Any way to remove skype for bussiness from office 365?

Hello all.

So we are migrating to teams and we need to remove skype for business.

Any clean way to do this? The office 365 gets installed as a bundle

of apps. Dont see a way to remove individual products.

All the info I'm seeing says I need to reinstall the whole thing again

and exclude skype. Cant be that drastic can it? Any work arounds from the ninjas?

the best way would be to rebuild your install package to exclude it with the installation.  See here:

We had the same requirements from a different team a few months before. You'll have to use a config file to uninstall the skype. I will see if i can get one for you. We also use this guide to remove the older versions of office.
