Only last week it became known that the Redmond company is planning and preparing a special extension that will bring the most important Outlook features to the browser. Now the time has come, the add-on can now be installed in a preview version.
Quick Access to the most important Outlook features
For many users nowadays, Outlook is the central platform for communication by e-mail as well as organizing appointments, and all users who use Microsoft Edge as a browser can now try out a suitable add-on. The extensions make it possible to get to the most important Outlook features at the push of a button.
The question of meaning can of course be asked if you work a lot with Outlook and have the mail application permanently open and in use in the desktop client or in a separate tab anyway. But if you only check your emails now and then, the extension is still well suited for you.
Because you get a quick look at your inbox at the push of a button and of course you can also read, answer or forward the individual posts. In addition, the calendar, contacts, and to-do tasks are available, the most important – and even surprisingly many – functionalities of Outlook are offered here too.
- Access to work or personal accounts
- Read, send and manage email and receive new email notifications
- Create events, view upcoming events, and join online meetings
- Create, track and manage tasks
- Manage contacts
The app can currently only be used on Microsoft’s own Edge browser. However, it is to be assumed or to be hoped that the Redmond-based company will also offer the extension for Chrome after the end of the preview phase – after all, browsers share the engine with Chromium.
