Microsoft Releases Lync for Mac 2011 14.1.1 (KB3074981)

Lync 2011 July 2015 Update

Lync for Mac 2011 V14.1.1 (150716) Update

Although Microsoft managed to deliver a new Office 2016 Suite for Mac users a few weeks ago, they unfortunately didn’t include an update to its chat client Lync for Mac. According to Microsoft insiders, although Skype for Business on the Mac platform isn’t slated for release until the end of Q4 2015, it’s more likely we won’t see the new client until Q1 2016 — after they release Microsoft Office for Blackberry.

While we wait for the new client, Microsoft continues to update its legacy Lync for Mac 2011 client. This week Microsoft released what it calls the “July 2015 Update” version 14.1.1 aka KB3074981.

This latest releases of Lync for Mac 2011 includes over a dozen bug fixes and other updates. Although it’s not the rewrite we’re all waiting for, it’s a welcome release being that we’ve not seen an update to the client since March.

Here’s a quick rundown of all the fixes in the update:

To install the update, grab the V150716 download – KB3074981 and install over the top of your existing Lync client. The download is only 39.6MB and takes no longer than a few minutes to get patched. I recommend all users get it installed immediately.
