Microsoft launches Skype for Business apps for iOS and Android in preview

Microsoft today announced a preview of new iOS and Android apps for Skype for Business, a piece of software that’s meant as a modern replacement for Microsoft Lync.

People with Lync 2013 apps on iOS and Android will automatically get this new Skype for Business app as an update “later this year,” Microsoft Skype for Business principal group program manager Jared Goralnick wrote in a blog post on the news today. The app works for companies using Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015, and Skype for Business Online.
