The future of office video conferencing: Microsoft Lync to be combined with Skype
Microsoft is preparing to combine its business-focused Lync video conferencing and instant messaging app with Skype to create a new package called Skype for Business.
The package, set to be released in the first half of 2015, will see the creation of a new Skype-like client app, an upgrade of the Lync server software and updates to the service in Office 365.
While Lync already offers instant messaging and audio calling with Skype users, Skype for Business users will also be able to make video calls to Skype users, as well as access to its user directory.
