This is however a setting that needs to be setup on your tenant (by an administrator), if your company allows it of course.

In the Admin Center, go to Settings > Services and Add-Ins. Then click on the link to the new Microsoft Teams Admin Center in the top right corner:

In the new Admin Center, click on Org Wide Settings > External Access. Here you can enable External Access, as well as giving users the ability to communicate with external Skype Users through Teams:

Under Org-wide Settings > Guest Access, you’ll find the settings for your Guests in Teams:
