After last year’s announcement by Microsoft that they were looking into merging their two apps, Outlook, and Sunrise into one app, the company has finally done it. Sunrise app was purchased more than a year ago and Microsoft plans to completely remove the app from the app stores by the end of August. The app will actually be removed from all stores in the following days and it will stop working for those who had it downloaded already by the end of August.
In a statement, the company said that even though this might be hard some customers, they were trying, by all means, to bring all Sunrise features to the Outlook app.
The statement also says,
The entire Sunrise team is now working side-by-side with the Outlook team and it’s a thrilling moment for us to work on an app of this scale.
Microsoft has for the time being improving the calendar that is in the Outlook app on both the iOS and Android systems. Microsoft integrated Facebook, Evernote, and Wunderlist to the app last month. The Sunrise was there to help with the integration. More of the Outlook calendar apps are to be expected promises the team. Skype for Business and OneNote integration are some of the apps expected to be there.
Sunrise still includes support for many calendar services right now that are still yet to be pushed into the Outlook app, and former Sunrise users who will be shifting hope the apps will be added to Outlook sooner than later.
