Microsoft is rolling out its latest update to Skype for Business on Android and iOS, bringing a couple of very handy improvements.
iOS users have already been able to enjoy the content viewing feature in Skype for Business for some time, allowing users to view the desktop and apps shared by a presenter during a meeting.
Today, Microsoft is bringing that feature to Android users too, and in a future update, the company says that it will also add the ability to view uploaded PowerPoint presentations on Android to further improve the mobile meeting experience.
With today's updates, iOS users are also getting improvements to their content viewing experience, as Microsoft explained today:
We have also greatly improved the content viewing experience on the Skype for Business app for iOS. Faster content refresh now allows for a smoother meeting experience—you’ll notice less delay between the presenter’s view and the content displayed on your device. The latest update also reduces the app’s battery consumption while you are viewing meeting content. Our test results show an improvement of up to 10–15 percent.
On both iOS and Android, Microsoft says that it's also delivered improvements to help you stay connected to a meeting, even when you're experiencing poor connectivity:
You now have the option to easily switch the meeting to your cellular line in case of weak Wi-Fi or data connection. The app proactively lets you know when your network might be affecting your meeting experience and provides you the option of having the meeting call you back on your configured mobile phone number. This is available on iOS and Android for all users who have Enterprise Voice enabled.
