Yup, Microsoft has just released an Outlook email mobile app that works on the Apple Watch, the first and only wearable device created by Apple.
Indeed, the latest version of the Outlook email mobile app for iOS comes with several interesting features that enable mobile users to check their email inboxes, get alerts for incoming messages, and even create and make use of preloaded responses in replying quickly to emails.
It is intriguing to note that Microsoft actually has its own smartwatch device, the Microsoft Band. But the company has expressed willingness to fully support not only the Apple Watch, but other wearable devices as well, including smartwatches that are powered by Google’s Android Wear mobile operating system for wearables. Also, Microsoft has already launched mobile apps (such as familiar names like PowerPoint, Skype, OneDrive, just to name a few) for both the Apple Watch and Android Wear gadgets.
Microsoft is certainly continuing to make good on its promise of making its mobile apps and other software services more available to all types of mobile users, regardless of the mobile operating system they are using for their mobile devices. And the Apple Watch, perhaps the most popular wearable device existing today, seems like an ideal product for Microsoft to continue reaching out to other consumers.
As for the Apple Watch, it clearly does not mind welcoming all the mobile apps it can get. After all, the more apps a device can support, the more diverse its uses are to people. As of now, Apple’s wearable device has access to about 8,500 mobile apps, as revealed by Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook last month. That is a significant improvement over the 3,500 it managed during the first three months since it was launched.
The new Outlook email mobile app should be a good addition to the list of Apple Watch apps, especially for owners of Apple’s smartwatch who are also regular Outlook users. Using the app, people can just quickly glance at their inbox or check what is next in their calendar by just swiping up from the Watch face. Users can also catch up on reading unopened messages while on the go, and even reply with the use prewritten responses. For those who want to use emojis, the Outlook email mobile app supports those, too. As for users who want to track important emails, they can take advantage of the app’s custom message alerts.
The new Outlook email mobile app is now available from iTunes.
