Anywhere Connect Android Phone and Tablet – Presence

 

For each contact you have subscribed to, you can see their presence. Similarly, your contacts can see your presence on their Contacts list. Presence means that your friends are able to see whether you are available, for example, “I’m available” or “I’m busy."

Note: This feature is unavailable for Anywhere Connect users who have a Skype4Business profile.
