Skype for Business / Lync

Lync becomes Skype for Business

Microsoft is in the process of converting Microsoft Lync to Skype for Business. The first phase of the transition is for Windows computers only.

Lync 2011 for Mac and Lync Mobile apps will remain Lync until Microsoft is ready to convert those too. During the transition period, Lync and Skype for Business users will continue to be able to connect with one another!

Both Lync and Skype for Business have the same functionality. The look-and-feel are slightly different as Microsoft merges Skype colors with Lync functionality.
