Lync Web App and Google Chrome

There was a recent update to Lync Server 2013 (including Lync Server 2013 as found in Office 365) that included a new error page for Chrome users.

It appears that Google dropped support for some older APIs that have been deprecated in Chrome. The APIs were for QuickDraw and Carbon.

While I have not had the experience of seeing the error page, I have heard that is reads:

Lync Web App

Google Chrome no longer supports Lync Web App
