Two month earlier Microsoft launched the Skype for Business. The new Skype had integrated the MS Office calendar. Furthermore it allowed group messages, video chats and calls. Up to 250 people could be included into the video conference through Skype.
On Tuesday Microsoft announced now it will release a mobile version of Skype for Business. The new apps for both iOS and Android are being worked on. Microsoft will invite users to test the new iOS and the Android version of Skype for Business. The new apps will contain a redesigned in-call experience.
Another new feature the apps will show is a centralized dashboard. From the dashboard users will be able to search for contacts. The dashboard will also allow employees to check for upcoming meetings and even RSVP them.
Archived conversations will also be accessible through the dashboard. The new apps will feature bigger display buttons and full screens for video chats.
Micro soft will test the new apps by providing previews to select users. For users to get their hands on the app they can visit the Skype website. From skypepreview.com users can nominate up to four new users for testing the new apps.
IT administrators have to apply by Friday to get their hands on the preview. After the initial test batch Microsoft will pick new testers on random.
