Lync Android client updated

Today Microsoft released an update for its Lync Android client. This new release brings some quite significant changes.

* Support for Passive Authentication
* Support for certificate authentication

These two changes brings the Android client up to speed to the other mobile clients when it comes to authentication. This is a necessary step to support Android as a full fledged mobile client.

* Contact management
This option is only available in the cloud… Which is a little dissapointing but fear not, it will be available in the next on-premise version.

One of the minor but very appreciated difference in this new version is that the calendar is changed to cover more days than just today.

What are you waiting for? Go grab it at the store.
