Microsoft rebrands Lync as 'Skype for Business'


Skype for Business

Microsoft is continuing to evolve to offer a more uniform experience across all their devices and services. Most recently the company has rebranding its Lync unified communication products as "Skype for Business."

Microsoft plans to make new versions of the Skype for Business client, Skype for Business on-premises server and Skype for Business online service that is part of Office 365 all in the first half of 2015. That is earlier than the other "Office servers" will launch. Microsoft officials said recently that the next versions of Exchange Server and SharePoint Server will arrive in the second half of calendar 2015.

Along with the rebranding, Microsoft is changing some of the user interface elements of Skype for Business so that it looks more like Skype. Microsoft will be using the Skype icons for calling, adding video and enabling a call in Skype for Business. Microsoft also is adding the "call monitor" window that is used in Skype to Skype for Business so that users can keep an active call visible inside a small window when users are focusing on another application.

Microsoft isn't removing any of the existing Lync features from Skype for Business, officials said. However Lync will continue to run on the Lync backbone, instead of Skype's.

Microsoft will be adding video calling to Skype for Business with the next on-premises and online releases. It also will be adding the ability to access the Skype user directory to Skype for Business so that users can look up any existing Skype user by Skype name or Microsoft Account (via Bing) to contact her/him. Additionally Microsoft will be building in the promised native interop between Skype for Business on-premises server and other video-conferencing systems so that users won't need any extra equipment to connect multiple systems, officials said.

Microsoft also will be delivering the second phase of its promised Skype-Lync federation in December 2014, officials said. Microsoft will be updating its Skype client software with H.264 codec support so as to be able to provide video integration between Skype and Lync 2013 before this year is over.

Current Lync Server customers will get the new Lync for Business features next year by updating from Lync client 2013 and Lync Server 2013 to the new Skype for Business releases. No new hardware will be required, officials said. Microsoft also will update Office 365 with the new Skype for Business bits next year and push them to users.

Since Microsoft acquired Skype in 2011 for $8.5 billion, Microsoft execs have differentiated the two unified communications offerings by saying Skype is for communication outside the firewall, and Lync, for inside the firewall. In late 2012, Microsoft moved the Lync team under the Skype team so that the two teams worked together in a single business unit.

Microsoft has launched two new videos which promote Office 365. The short ads look to educate potential users on 365's accessibility (“anywhere and on any device”) and secure cloud syncing. The ads are entertaining and in line with Microsoft's recent attempts to look “more fun, even if production-oriented”.





Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription based service which allows you to download Office apps on Windows and Mac OS X. Additionally the subscription provides storage space on Microsoft's cloud storage service OneDrive, and grants 60 Skype minutes per month. For business and enterprise users, Office 365 offers plans including e-mail and social networking services through hosted versions of Exchange Server, Lync, SharePoint and Office Web Apps, integration with Yammer, as well as access to the Office software.

Will these videos influence your purchase of an Office 365 subscription? Leave us a comment and let us know.

Microsoft working on Office for Android, early access available soon


Microsoft Office

It looks like Microsoft is in the process of finalizing a dedicated version of Office for Android tablets, following on the success of Office for iPad. It looks like the company is in the process of readying a pre-release program where folks will get the opportunity to partake in testing the touch optimized Office suite on their Android powered tablets.

The private pre-release program will allow users to test Word, Excel and PowerPoint for Android, with the aim of having the final version ready later this year. Interestingly the touch optimized version of these apps have still not been made available for the Windows platform, though iOS and soon Android will have access to them.

Office has been available on Android for some time now, allowing users to perform basic view and edit functions on their smartphones. With the success of Office for iPad, and the continuous growth of the Android tablet user base, it makes sense that Microsoft would want to capitalize on it before it is too late.

If you have an Android tablet, and are interested in testing out the beta version of Office for Android ahead of its launch, follow the source link and register your interest.
