You can’t join a meeting from outside Lync 2013, Lync 2010, or Skype for Business on iOS 10.0 and later

Consider the following scenario:

  • You’re using an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad that’s running Apple iOS 10.0.
  • You have Microsoft Lync 2013, Lync 2010, or Skype for Business installed on the device.
  • You try to join a meeting from outside the Lync or Skype for Business app. For example, you tap the “Join Meeting” link in an email message or calendar appointment in an app other than Lync or Skype for Business.

In this scenario, the link tries to start the desktop version of the website instead of the mobile version. The mobile version would try to start the Lync or Skype for Business app and join the meeting, or redirect you to the app store if it cannot join the meeting. The desktop version will not try to start the app.

Workaround from MS support

Fix will be available in Skype for Business CU4, Lync 2013 CU8 HF1.
