The final release of the Mac version of Skype for Business is scheduled to happen in the third quarter of this year. Microsoft has planned two additional Beta phases in between, the second beta phase will include instant messaging, presence indicators and access to the user’s contacts. The third beta phase will also include support for telephony and other advanced features. This would be important for Businesses that have already availed the services to place phone calls from the application over a traditional phone line.
Lync has been one of the most widely used communicators used across organizations. Microsoft Office has been undoubtedly the market leader when it comes to the official suite of softwares. With this move, Microsoft would expand the reach of Skype and other products to other platforms including Mac.
