Microsoft revealed on Thursday that its Lync for Mac 2011 software has now released to manufacturing.
The software giant plans to make Lync available in October for Mac users. Lync for Mac 2011 will be made available to customers as part of the Office for Mac 2011 Volume Licensing SKU, Office for Mac Standard 2011 or Microsoft’s other licensing programs. Microsoft will also offer businesses the opportunity to purchase standalone licences.
“Starting in October, our Mac customers will be able to experience the integrated communications experience that Lync has become well known for,” said Microsoft’s Kirk Gregersen in a blog post on Thursday. “From the updated contact cards to the ability to set up Lync conferences from Outlook 2011 for Mac to enterprise voice features, Lync for Mac 2011 offers Mac users integrated functionality for presence, instant messaging, conferencing and voice and is designed to work with both Lync Server 2010 and Lync Online.”
