On this page, you can learn how to make face-to-face video calls with Lync 2013 for iPad.


If you have a campus Lync Account with a phone number,  you can make face-to-face video calls with your contacts.

Start a video call

To make a video call, from the left, tap the second icon to get to the Contacts screen. Find the person in your Contacts list or type their name in the search box. When you find the contact, tap their name, and then tap the Video icon to start a video call.
