Back in November 2014 the big news was that the next version of Lync would be Skype for Business. The business version, coupled with the best of Lync, promised to transform the way people communicate by giving organizations access to hundreds of millions of Skype users outside the walls of their business. It is expected to reach our desktops and laptops “in the first half of 2015.”
A decade ago, Skype broke down the distance barrier by bringing people together from all over the world, changing the way people shared their lives. Today, Skype is used by more than 300 million people for messaging, calling and sharing. It lets people and groups connect across multiple platforms to get things done. From desktop, to mobile to TV, the versatile software is a universal symbol of togetherness.
Skype can be downloaded free for Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Home phones, Smart TV, Xbox One and more. Lync is a part of Office 365. If you don’t currently have access to Microsoft Office products, you can buy Office 365 Personal 1 year Subscription Key Card at Amazon US for $69.99.
You can be a part of the Skype communication transformation at no cost now. Your business may already have access to Lync as a part of Office 365, or you can join personally. Be ready for the shift to Skype Business!
