The Lync 2013 app for Windows Phone is here!

As someone who is always on the go and can’t always be tied to my desk, I use the Lync 2013 for Windows Phone pretty much every day. The app brings the power of the Lync desktop app to your mobile device – including voice and video over wireless, instant messaging, conferencing and calling features – and all from a sleek, easy-to-use interface. 

Here are some of the new app’s key features:

· View colleagues’ availability in real time and select the best way to communicate – initiating an instant message (IM), e-mail, 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.

Be sure to check it out.
