Microsoft Announces Lync to Skype Connectivity


It was only a matter of time, as Microsoft announced today the ability to connect from Lync to Skype.  Microsoft’s purchase of Skype was always intended to be a primary connection portal for the family room.  With the recent push for BYOD in enterprise, Skype XBOX connectivity could in future allow boardroom conversations to happen in the family room as well.  Initial set of features includes:

  • Adding Skype contacts to Lync and vice-versa, enabling presence sharing
  • Audio calling and instant messaging between Lync and Skype users
  • Management settings for Lync administrators
