Microsoft announces availability of Skype for Business for Android

After working on feedback for the past few months from users in its preview program, Microsoft has announced general availability of its Skype for Business for Android app.

With a new dashboard design, it brings the contact search bar, upcoming meetings and most recent conversations to one place. It features better contact management and additional authentication and security options. The app now supports modern authentication which is utilized by other Office clients. Modern authentication also enables IT admins to configure multi-factor authentication for users of the Skype for Business Android app. With multi-factor authentication, users are required to acknowledge a phone call, text message or an app notification on their device after correctly entering their user name and password.

The new Skype for Business app for Android is now available in the Google Play store. Android users with Lync 2013 will be automatically updated to the Skype for Business app based on their device settings.
