Skype Lync Integration has Started

Microsoft has started to implement the Lync and Skype integration. For those that use Lync at their offices, this is a great addition. This makes me want to install Lync on my home server (Server 2012) to try this out. I may need to upgrade my server to support more of these cool things Microsoft is releasing!

As of today, according to Microsoft, users of the two services can now:

  • Add Skype contacts to Lync and vice-versa, enabling presence sharing
  • Initiate audio calling and instant messaging between Lync and Skype
