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.

lyncThe 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.
