Skye for Business can now be tested on the iPhone and Android devices.
Microsoft announces Skype for Business preview releases for iOS and Android.
"We’ve seen great momentum in the first few months since the arrival of Skype for Business, and today, I’m excited to announce the preview of the new Skype for Business apps for iOS and Android. Here’s a look at what’s new and how you can participate in the preview," said Jared Goralnick, principal group program manager for the Skype for Business team in a blog post.
The new Skype client features a new dashboard for navigation of contacts, calls and meetings. It also features an updated the In-Call and In-Meeting experience. The new dashboard brings the contact search bar, upcoming meetings and most recent conversations to one place.
Users running Lync 2013 on their iOS or Android device, will get the new Skype for Business app as an update later this year.
Skype for Business mobile apps work for anyone on Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015 and Skype for Business Online.
To ensure IT administrators can prepare their end users and organizations for this change, Microsoft has added the Skype for Business iOS and Android apps to the Skype for Business Preview program.
