Lync is now Skype for Business

You may have noticed that Lync has a new name this morning. Microsoft Office updates this weekend included Lync’s rebranding to Skype for Business. The most notable change will be the Start Menu shortcut and icon.  Here is what it will look like in the start menu:

When scheduling online meetings in Outlook, you’ll see the Skype Meeting icon instead.
