Overview of Lync Mobile for Android

The second Lync mobile client has landed, this time for Android – Grab it from the market place here.

I’ve grabbed the app & loaded it up on a friends device to grab a few screenshots. If your curious you can have a look at my WP7 Lync overview (it has more screen shots & a network trace in).

Also don’t forget you need to prepare your Lync environment with some updates & tweaks before you can sign-in, instructions here.

Launching and Signing in


Enter your SIP address & password, chances are you also need to specify your username. Click the “menu” hardware buttong on your phone & enter the “options” screen.


Click the … to enter your username (probably in the format <domain>\<User>)

First run



Main App screens


Click the … to set your status





Contact cards & Search


Clicking Dial launches the android phone dialler

Background notification

  1. I think the client is pretty good. Looks good, works fine. I do wish the client allowed for video calls or would use SIP to communicate via a tablet but maybe those features will be included in a future version.

  2. hi,the lync client is limited to IM,no possibility to
