Today, we’re excited to announce Skype and Lync customers around the world are now able to connect with each other from across these platforms. With Lync-Skype connectivity, Skype users will now be able to reach a broader network of colleagues, partners and customers who are using Lync, Microsoft’s unified communications platform, connecting them into organizations of all sizes. Lync provides a consistent, single client experience for presence, instant messaging, voice, video and meetings for business productivity and is owned by over 90 of the Fortune Global 100 companies.


As Tony Bates, President of the Skype division at Microsoft, explained in his keynote at the Lync Conference in February, people are at the center of our vision for the future of communications. To turn our vision into reality, we think it’s important to re-humanize technology so that consumers, professionals and decision-makers can interact with technology how and when they want – from the living room to the boardroom.


This is our first step in combining the enterprise richness of Lync and the global reach of Skype to transform the communications experience and enable Skype users to reach professional contacts in organizations of all sizes.


More details on how you establish the Lync, ehm.... link between Skype and Lync can be found in Skype's big blog. We are looking forward to hear about your experience and invite you to share your thoughts here on the Skype community.

US - CNN showing today that SKYPE, even though it is based in Luxenbourg, has apparently been complying with US government NSA requests, possibly through the PRISM Program, to obtain phone records of SKYPE users - from the many SKYPE users - - without any assumption of any guilt for any offence.


The question is "why" ????


SKYPE's Privacy Policy does not state "any compliance" with any supposed "secret court orders" requiring it to comply.

Despite what Cisco are attempting through the European Courts I believe that this is a good step in the right direction.

What I would really like to be able to do is have all of my Skype contacts replaced by my Office 365 contacts fully synched with Outlook 2013.

My guess would be that in order for this to happen we would need to be seeing the release of Skype Pro in much the same way as Office 2013 saw the release of SkyDrive Pro.
