I Have Mac Lync 2011 Can I Download Skype For Business

This page contains installation instructions for Skype for Business for Mac.

Both Lync for Mac and Skype for Business allow you to: Chat using instant messaging; Make PC-to-PC phone. Lync Web App is the browser-based version of Lync 2010 that allows people who don’t have a Lync account and haven’t installed the Lync client to participate in Lync meetings, using either a Windows or Macintosh operating system.

System Requirements

Oct 27, 2016 I have the same problem. Had Lync 2011 installed, and added Skype for Business beta (now running the latest Outlook & SFB). Creating online meeting only worked when I was signed in to Lync, regardless if SFB was running. Could sign in to meetings with SFB, but never create them. Jan 08, 2021 Sep 13, 2018 If you go to the Skype for Business 2016 Mac client download page you see that they recommend using the Lync 2011 client when connecting to Lync Server 2010. To test the vulnerability, you will need an attacking machine (a Windows host that can run PowerShell), and a target machine (a Mac with the Lync Mac 2011 client running).

Make sure your computer will support Skype for Business:

  • OS X El Capitan (10.11) or newer is required.
  • Skype for Business 16.22 or newer is required for macOS Mojave
  • Outlook Mac build 15.27 (161010) or newer required for Outlook integration
  • Make sure your computer is fully patched with security and software updates.
  • Recommended hardware configurations are described on the Recommended Computer Configurations page.
If you previously had the Mac Lync 2011 client installed, you should perform a clean uninstall of the Lync before installing Skype for Business. Instructions for this can be found at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2691870/how-to-do-a-clean-uninstallation-of-lync-for-mac-2011.
