Technology: New Lync Features Released

Microsoft recently released updates to Lync with some cool new features on 7/16/2013.  They are:

  • Viewing meeting content on the Windows Phone or iPhone.  This was already possible on the iPad.
  • A new Q/A manager inside Lync meetings to more effectively moderate Q/A during large meetings.   This is accessible from the sharing button.

  • If you are presenting and want to minimize any distractions in the IM channel, now you can block IM’s in a meeting.  This is accessible from the Participants button.
