Microsoft Lync 2013 enterprise messaging and VOIP app now in the Windows Phone 8 Store
Just as promises, the Windows Phone Lync 2013 app has now made an appearance in the Windows Phone Store.
The app, which is designed for Enterprise, requires a Lync account, and a relatively up to date Lync server for full functionality.
The Lync 2013 for Windows Phone client allows voice & video over wireless, rich presence, instant messaging, conferencing, and calling features from a single, easy-to-use interface.
The app features:
- 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.
The app is Windows Phone 8 only. If you have the proper version of Lync installed in your shop, you can find the client in the Windows Phone Store here.
