The beginning of this month Microsoft released the new 2013 mobile client.
The client is available for the following platforms:
The server backend must have the February 2013 (CU1) updates installed.
These can be downloaded at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2809243
Below you will find a feature list for Lync 2013 mobile clients on different platforms.
It’s now possible to start audio / video calls over Wifi or 3G.
In the options menu is an option to require Wi-fi for audio / video calls.
I recommend selecting this to reduce bandwith usage and reduce cellular costs. You can also disable photo’s to reduce bandwith usage.
The contact list and contact card.
From the card you can initiate chat, audio call, video call or email.
When clickin the call button you can initiate a call.
When initiating a Lync call the client automatically dials the number or creates a peer to peer session. Within the Lync 2010 mobile client the server always called back to initiate a call.
The chat and video calling functionality.
Also new is when you are added to a response group, the response group call will also ring on your phone and you have the ability to pickup this call on your mobile.
The keypad still looks the same.
The voicemail is also available from the client and you have the ability to delete of call back.
