Microsoft launches Skype for Business Preview apps for Android and iOS. Microsoft today launches the preview of the new Skype for Business apps for Android and iOS with a new dashboard for easy navigation of your contacts, calls and meetings, and updated the In-Call and In-Meeting experience. Through this preview, customers will get an early view of the Android and iOS apps. As the name implies, the features in Preview are not yet final. Windows Phone users can already download the Skype for Business Windows Phone app today.

The updated dashboard brings the contact search bar, your upcoming meetings and most recent conversations to one place.
Contact search bar-Search your Global Address List by first name, last name, email alias or even a phone number! On iOS, your phone contacts are also included in the search.
Upcoming appointments-Here you can see your current and next meetings in your calendar. You can either click through to read more about the meeting or click the Quick Join icon to join the meeting right away.
Recent conversations-Makes it easy to refer back to your most recent chats, phone calls and meetings.

Microsoft rebuilt the In-Call and In-Meeting experience with new features that make it easier to navigate calls and meetings on your mobile phone or tablet.
+ Larger buttons make it easier to mute, add participants and manage your call.
+ Video, which now fills the screen, brings you closer to your colleagues.
+ Microsoft made it easier to navigate between video and content with just one tap by simplifying the IM, video and content panes. While you can still view content in full screen, you can now also view content and see the speaker's video at the same time!

If you have Lync 2013 on your Android or iOS device, you'll get the new Skype for Business app as an update later this year. Skype for Business mobile apps work for anyone on Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015 and Skype for Business Online.

To ensure IT administrators can prepare their end users and organizations for this change, Microsoft have added our Skype for Business Android and iOS apps to their Skype for Business Preview program.

To participate in the preview, IT administrators can visit www.skypepreview.com to nominate up to four end users for Android and four for iOS to participate in the preview. Please apply by Friday, August 14, 2015 to be considered in their first batch of participants. Microsoft will begin notifying IT admins via email of their acceptance starting the week of August 17, 2015.

Sign up for the Skype for Business for Android and iOS Preview today.
