Also, if you are running the latest server software, all your recent conversations will now be synchronized across all your devices, regardless of which device they took place on.
How you can upgrade
If you are using Lync app on your Windows Phone, it will be upgraded automatically and replace the existing app and tile but if not you can download it from the Windows Store.
Windows Phone 8.1 users can download the new Skype for Business app from Windows Store. Users of Windows Phone 8.0 Lync 2013 or Lync 2010 will have to continue using these apps, however it will still work and remain compatible with the new Skype for Business server.
