At its Lync Conference this week in Las Vegas, Microsoft demoed plans to add Lync for Android tablets.
Video conferencing between Lync and Skype will help improve communications between businesses and their customers
In addition, Microsoft also demonstrated cross-platform video conferencing between Lync and Skype, resolving one major issue that’s existed since Microsoft linked the two services last May. Voice calling between Skype and Lync has actually been available since May last year, but isn’t ready for public usage.
Gurdeep Singh Pall, Corporate Vice President for Lync and Skype Engineering, demoed the service on stage at Microsoft’s second annual Lync conference in Las Vegas. The new compatibility between the two platforms will undoubtedly help business professionals more easily stay in contact with their consumers across both voice and video calls.
The feature is said to be launching “later this year” while Lync for Android will be available sometime this summer.
