Lync Online for Mobile Devices
The new release of Lync Mobile is supported by both Lync Server 2010 users and Lync Online customers. End users who are supported by those platforms can add the app via their app store.
Lync mobile enables you to stay connected, communicate and conference on the go. This brings the power of unified communications into play, syncing up what you do on your desktop, laptop, and phone for presence, IM, and conferencing. Some major features include:
- The ability to join video and web conferences on the fly with a single touch.
- Federated Presence, see where your business contacts are at any given moment. Lync Online supports presence with location and status awareness so that you can know at a glance who is and isn’t busy.
- Connect securely through channel encryption, transport layer security (TLS) support, and perimeter/internal network protection that help safeguard your communications.
- Communicate with a single consistent identity. Outbound calls from your phone will share identity within your Enterprise network. Making it easier for others to recognize calls from the Lync mobile client.
