Enterprise Instant Messaging (IM) for BlackBerry 10 Devices - Lync2013 - features supported?

Hi,

 

We're in the process of rolling out Lync2013 for IM, presence and telephony within our environment. Since we use BB10 (Z10, Q10) we also want to have Lync functionality on our BB10 devices by using "Enterprise Instant Messaging (IM) for BlackBerry 10 Devices".

 

Is there any info available as to which features of Lync2013 are supported by the IM 3.0-client on BB10?

 

Microsoft has an list of features for mobile clients available however this one lists only IOS and Android - nothing about BB10 :smileysad:

 

I'm pretty sure the basic IM, and presence features will be supported - but how about

 

  • Lync-to-Lync Audio and Video
  • Telephony Support in Lync Mobile Clients

(see document mentioned above). Are these features supported on the BB10 IM3.0-client too?

 

Thanks much in advance for any clue,

At the moment, the IM client on BB10 only supports basic IM and presence. There is no support for audio, video, or telephony.
