Microsoft is testing Cortana in Outlook mobile

Microsoft is testing Cortana in Outlook mobile

This information just a week after Microsoft's Outlook for iOS and Android head moved to heading the Cortana digital assistant.

As with other digital assistants that can manage messages, such as Alexa with text messages, Cortana's big benefit will be its hands-free access for users. Another important improvement is the addition of more RSVP options, which are now available for both Android and iOS users. Perhaps that's why it's not surprising to hear that the company has been testing Cortana integration within the Outlook app for iOS and Android. You can simply speak and Cortana will respond properly to the emails. Sources told The Verge that Microsoft is working on a version of Outlook for Android and iOS that would include Cortana built-in and would allow users to ask the virtual assistant to read and reply to emails for them. This will reportedly be possible over Bluetooth from the mobile app and Cortana. All of this would prove to be very useful for users on the go. However, before releasing the update for public use, the company will first release the Beta update of the app and after receiving proper feedbacks from the testers, they will release the app with its Public update.
