Microsoft Releases Lync And Skype Windows Store App For Windows 8

Microsoft has recently released its two communication apps for Windows 8 in Windows Store for consumers and enterprise customers. The Lync integrates voice & video calls, Lync Meetings, presence and IM in a fast, fluid, easy-to-use app. Features

  • Communicate from anywhere with an Internet connection.
  • Easily switch between IM, voice, or video or use all at once.
  • Stay connected to your colleagues with real-time status updates, rich presence information and fast and fluid contact list search and management.
  • Join Lync Meetings with a single touch and easily switch between IM, group video, and content views.
  • Stay connected while reducing resource consumption — Lync provides background and connected standby connectivity so you never miss an important conversation.
  • Use Windows search to find and communicate with your colleagues.
  • Snap view — Need to reference another app or website while using Lync? Lync can snap to the side of your screen so you can multi-task and use both apps at the same time.
