Microsoft Lync Replaced by Skype for Business

As you may have noticed, Microsoft Lync (our previous messaging application) was replaced with Skype for Business during the month of April. You'll notice that all of the features you previously used are still there with a much more streamlined look and simplified controls. If you've ever used Skype for personal use, you'll notice that many of the features are now also being used in Skype for Business.

Many improvements have been made with the transition from Lync to Skype for Business. Some of these include content sharing and telephony. You can now transfer a call with one click instead of three. Also, video calling now allows you to call anyone with a Skype account on any device.
