Microsoft has been a strong supporter of the Apple Watch, and that’s continuing today with the release of Outlook for Apple Watch. If you have been using the Outlook email app for iOS then it already works relatively well with the Apple Watch, but the latest update makes it easier to see full emails and the ability to now reply to messages. By default, Outlook notifications on the Apple Watch now show a lot more of the email body instead of cutting it short after a couple of sentences.
Microsoft’s Outlook Comes to The Apple Watch
Microsoft has been a solid supporter of the Apple Watch, and that is proceeding with today with the release of Outlook for Apple Watch. If you have been using the Outlook email application for iOS then it already works relatively well with the Apple Watch, but the most recent update makes easier to see full messages and the ability to now reply to messages. As a matter of course, Outlook notifications on the Apple Watch now show significantly more of the email body as opposed to stopping it after two or three sentences. While despite everything you can’t answer instantly from a notification, you can now tap on the Outlook symbol in the notification to launch Outlook Apple Watch application that gives you a chance to see an outline of email and reply to any messages using quick replies or dictation.
Microsoft has also manufactured an Outlook look for the Apple Watch, giving a quick look at messages and calendar arrangements. Like most other Apple Watch applications, Microsoft’s included, it’s a fairly fundamental application that essentially broadens the notification experience. Microsoft has also setup a dedicated wearables site to list and detail its different Office applications for Android Wear and the Apple Watch. Microsoft’s most recent Outlook for Apple Watch application joins a large group of comparable applications including OneDrive, PowerPoint, Skype, and OneNote.
