#Lync Question 40: What sounds have changed with the Skype for Business client

Disclaimer: The following blog post is subject to change as it is based on the pre-released version of the Skype for Business client.

A number of the sounds that us and our users have become accustom to over the last few years have changed with the Skype for Business client.

Under the either of the following folders you will find a bunch of .WAV files

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\Media (64-bit Windows)
  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\Media (32-bit Windows)
  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\Office15\Media (Click-to-Run)

Most of the major sounds have changed. Such as the ringer, alert and invite sounds.
