It’s Saturday, time to review all of the highlights from this week’s Microsoft Lync Solution news.

A new Microsoft Lync 2013 update will bring a new set of features for mobile users. Windows and iPhone (News - Alert) users will now have access to all Lync-like tools, including being able to view shared meeting content and participating and rejoining a conference in progress.

Additionally users will gain control of muting or removing attendees from a call, transferring calls to another phone, picking up conversations, and viewing call history.

Another Microsoft solution extending its mobile footprint is Microsoft Office, which is now available for Android (News - Alert) users. Although the program has been available to iPhone users for a few months, Android users had to wait until now to gain access.

Android users will now be able to enjoy Microsoft (News - Alert) Office and the cloud-based version of Office 365, all from the comfort of their own home, via their phone. Features include access to online storage; creating, editing, and saving documents; and access to office web applications.

According to a Microsoft blog post, "The release of this app shows that we're committed to keep providing additional value for Office 365 subscribers. Office 365 subscribers will now be able to access, view, and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents with Windows Phone (News - Alert) iPhone and Android phones.''

Finally, as Mike McClain, IT director of Technology Strategy & Architecture, said, nothing is more important than having everything you need for a business meeting. McClain, who is a big fan of the Lync programs, said companies should take advantage of its features.

“Employees can quickly start a chat session and then add video or share an application. Our employees have started using Lync for their meetings, and we see they are interacting with their colleagues with video and desktop sharing,” said McClain, referring to the Lync Meetings program.
