Join a Lync Meeting from Lync Web App

Use Lync Web App to join a Lync Meeting from your browser if you don’t have Lync 2013 or Lync Basic 2013. Lync Web App will launch automatically when you click the Join Lync Meeting link in the meeting invitation. You can use your computer’s mouse and speakers or a headset to connect to the audio portion of the meeting. If your computer doesn’t have any audio devices connected to it, you can connect to the audio portion of the meeting from your phone instead. Choose what’s best for you.
