The Unified Communications Web API (UCWA) allows you to interact with Lync / Skype for Business using HTTP Request/Response calls. This potentially opens up the opportunity to communicate on any internet-connected devices such as embedded devices and non-Windows machines. Functionality is limited to Instant Message, Presence and Contact Management, with no A/V support. A collection of JavaScript libraries are provided to make implementation in the browser easier.

Use Cases

Web-based interactions. Embedded devices. Linux/Unix devices.
