The latest release of Lync mobile includes a number of new features – first, Lync Mobile now provides the ability to view uploaded PowerPoint presentations from your Windows Phone or iOS device.

Other new features allow Windows Phone users to control Lync using voice commands. This is helpful if you, like me, often use your phone to join Lync meetings while driving. Instead of searching through your phone, now all you need to do is hold down the home key and say “Lync, join my next meeting” or “Lync, join my current meeting”. Note this added functionality is for Windows devices only.
There is also a new GUI for Lync on iOS 7 devices:
