Lync provides instant messaging (IM), online meetings, availability information, and audio and video calling at work and while on the go. It’s part of Office 365, a subscription, cloud-based service that gives you secure anywhere-access to Office applications, including Lync. In Office 365, Lync data—contacts, presence (availability) information, conversation history, and so on—is stored online. You can access it from your work computer, any computer—such as your home computer, a friend’s computer, or a public computer—or a supported cell phone.
