Latest Skype update on Windows Phone 8 allows for Microsoft Accounts and VOIP Calls to Lync

I have added my Lync account to my favorites (I cannot find how to add lync accounts to the Skype mobile app but that probably requires the Desktop Client)

I can see the presence clearly in front of the name but the name somehow gets truncated first + last name without any spaces.

I can check the profile where it says Messenger/Microsoft Account which is not correct, this must be Lync Contact

Chat Works as expected

Microsoft promised to bring the full Skype integration by june 2013, clearly everything is not functional yet but we are almost there.

Happy Skyping and Lyncing
