In 2013, we enabled Lync users to contact people on Skype  using instant messaging, presence, and audio calling right from your contact list. I’m happy to say that we’ve now taken the next step by  adding video calling between Lync 2013 and the latest Skype for Windows desktop client, available for download here.  Now Lync users can conduct everyday business and collaboration “face-to-face” with customers, partners and suppliers who use Skype.
