Lync for Mac 2011 is released to manufacturing

September 9th, 2011 | Tags: , , ,

Those that use Mac OS will no doubt be aware that there are a number of limitations within the Communicator for Mac client, most notable being that inability to experience the full conferencing capability of Lync (Lync Web App does go some way to address this).

Also unlike the PC Lync client it is unable to hookup to Office 365 or “Lync Online”, but fear not…help is at hand. Last night the Office for Mac blog announced that the Lync for Mac 2011 had been “released to manufacturing”, great news for Mac users and as with other Cocoa-based apps it looks very Apple-esque!

For a detailed Mac Communicator and the Windows Lync client comparison i’d recommend reading an article on Justin Morris’s blog here also for the full announcement head here. A video tour of the new Mac Lync client due for release in October is below…

    Is Enterprise Vocie finally available for MAC users?
    Can they do conferencing under MAC now?

    Hi Richard,

    Communicator for Mac 2011 supports enterprise voice for OCS and Lync and technically you could get conferencing via the Lync Web App – although with the RTM it will be available natively.

    Hope this helps.
