Microsoft this week released a Lync app that supports Android tablets, closing the one large remaining hole in the unified communications platform's mobile device coverage.
Lync apps were already available for Android phones, as well as for iPads, iPhones, Windows 8.1 devices and Windows Phones.
The new app works for both Android tablets and Android phones. The mid-May delivery beats Microsoft's self-imposed deadline of late June. Microsoft Corporate Vice President Derek Burney floated that late June deadline while demonstrating a pre-release version of the Android app on stage at Microsoft's Lync Conference in February.
Because the Android app now combines phone and tablet form factors, Microsoft added the ability to adjust icon sizes, as well as image and video settings. Two new features for all Android users in the app are the ability to start ad hoc group conversations and to add participants to ongoing conversations.
The Lync app requires Android 4.0 or later, a 1.2GHz dual core or higher processor and at least a VGA camera.
