Microsoft has announced that Lync and Skype users now are able connect to each other from across the different platform. By taking a quick look, a few things that I think need to be noticed.

  • The Lync-Skype Connectivity needs to be installed.
  • You need to use the Microsoft live ID to login Skype.
  • The Lync directory is searchable from within latest Skype client.
  • The Skype directory is not searchable from within Lync client. You have to know the users’ Microsoft Live ID accounts.
