Lync 2013 has been made available for Windows Phone 8 smartphones. The app from Microsoft enables those who have a Lync 2013 account to utilise the service on Windows Phone. Voice and video is supported with instant messaging, conferencing and extra call features to help provide an effective platform for business and enterprise to take advantage of.
The company previously revealed plans to launch the app this month, after demonstrating integration between both Lync and Skype at its Lync conference, held in San Diego last month. We expect to see updates in the future to further integrate everything together. Windows Phone has already sported a Lync 2010 app for some time.
Features highlighted in the Lync 2013 store description:
- View colleagues’ availability in real time and select the best way to communicate – initiating an instant message (IM), email, voice or video call.
- Connect to Lync Meetings with a single touch, without requiring long numeric passcodes or conference numbers.
- Forward or simultaneously ring calls to your Enterprise Voice (Lync ID) number so you’ll never miss a call.
- Lync 2013 for Windows Phone provides transport layer security (TLS) and perimeter/internal network protection without requiring a VPN, so your communications experience is safer no matter where you are or what network you use.
You can download Lync 2013 from the Windows Phone Store. Thanks, Techno-Freak, for the tip!
