lync 2010

Although the Lync 2010 app was MIA yesterday in the Store it evidently was due to the fact that it was getting an update.

Indeed heading to the Store you can now find version 4.3 ready for download. Unfortunately, there is no change log to go with it and since we don’t use Lync ourselves, we can’t do our normal compare and contrast. The app was last updated in March with version 4.1.

But if you’re a Lync fan, you’ll want to go ahead and grab the update here. Notice some changes? Let us know in comments.

Lync 2010 app updated for Windows Phone

It's been awhile since we've seen any movement on the Lync front for Windows Phone, so it's nice to see the app get a small update to version 4.1.

The popular enterprise messaging and conference app for the Lync service had been a much anticipated release for Windows Phone and it finally came last December.

Unfortunately, there is no changelog published to detail what, if anything, is new (although more language support is a good bet). If you notice anything different, comment below for the rest of us!

Pick up Lync 2010 for Windows Phone here in the Marketplace. Thanks, Eduardo V., for the heads up

We know that Lync Mobile for Windows Phone or just 'Lync 2010' is wanted by many, being one of the most anticipated apps this year. In fact, we saw it in action at Nokia World and heard a few weeks ago that its availability was imminent. By allowing workers to stay connected via the mobile phones, employees can now easily initiate conference calls, meetings and keep in touch all within the tightly controlled Microsoft Lync system for enterprise.

So it's a good sign that we've been able to actually see it in the Windows Phone Marketplace but alas, you can't actually download it just yet. Evidently, if you click on a meeting request URL in Internet Explorer 9 on your phone, you get the above dialog screen, asking if you want to download the app. You are then taken to the Marketplace where the app description and screenshots are visible.

In other words, Microsoft has the deep linking already in motion for Lync Mobile, they're just waiting for the go ahead to actually publish. Massive teaser, yes. But at least you know you should have this app well before Christmas.

We’ve talked about Microsoft Lync Server before. The follow-up to Office Communication Server does a number of cool things like handle chat and voice communication in an Enterprise environment. Lync is also included in Microsoft Office 365 which is a cloud-based solution for small-to-medium businesses that also provides access to Exchange and SharePoint.

An official Lync client for Windows Phone 7 is supposed to be on the way, but that’s not stopping some enterprising developers from building their own app. The video is awfully boring, but it gives you an idea of some of the things that you’ll be able to do with a Lync client for Windows Phone 7.

Thanks Ron!
