Lync for Mac update includes Enhanced 911 functionality with location awareness feature

An update to Lync for Mac announced Tuesday includes a highly requested feature: Enhanced 911 (E911) functionality with location awareness.

“With E911, you can customize your location and enable a more precise emergency response location (ERL), in addition to sharing your location with other users,” write Nikolay Muravlyannikov, a Lync program manager, and Barak Manor, a Lync product manager, in a blog post.

In addition to that new feature, “we have continued to work on improving the Lync for Mac user experience, including dynamic selection of a video camera while in a meeting and better file/picture transfer in IM and desktop sharing.”
