Lync Mobile is here!

Lync Mobile has arrived.

The mobile device client for Lync 2010 is now available for Windows Mobile, and Android. The iphone, ipad, and Nokia versions of the apps¬†should be available in the coming days/weeks as the app is goes through the relevant “app store” processes.

Just to be clear the Lync Mobile client does not provide voice/video calls over IP in this release. What it does provide is:

  • Instant Messaging & Presence
  • Contact List with photos
  • Call via Work
  • Conference Join
  • Outside voice control (set call forward/simultaneous ring)

For those who already have Lync deployed, note that there are backend changes required to enable the Lync Mobile client. The changes include:

  • DNS
  • Certificates
  • Policies
  • Software Updates
  • New Lync services and IIS changes
  • Reverse proxy changes
