Skype for Business is a voice-messaging product designed to enable Microsoft business customers to engage in an instant messaging environment. Formerly Microsoft Lync, the updated software was designed by Microsoft Inc. to serve as a replacement for Windows Messenger in the business platform. Users can utilize tools such as text messaging as well as audio and HD video tools for instant conferencing and collaboration. The software is designed with more business centered features than the consumer Skype counterpart. It was first geared at Windows and Android devices but has been repeatedly updated and now also boasts a version for Mac powered devices.
