Microsoft reportedly bringing Cortana integration to Outlook for Android and iOS

Microsoft reportedly bringing Cortana integration to Outlook for Android and iOS
Shortly after Microsoft's Outlook for Android and iOS boss Javier Soltero moved to leading the Cortana team, new reports claim the Redmond-based company plans to bring the digital assistant to the email app.

Apparently, sources familiar with Microsoft's plans told The Verge that Cortana integration on Outlook for Android and iOS is now being tested internally, and if results are positive, then the feature will be part of a beta program before going public.

The report also mentions Cortana integration will allow Outlook users on Android and iOS to take advantage of voice control features like the option to read messages aloud. Also, users will be able to ask questions like “what's my email,” as well as read messages that have been sent by a specific contact in Outlook.

Unfortunately, it's a bit too early to estimate a beta release since Cortana integration is still being tested internally. Actually, we're a bit surprised that Microsoft hasn't included Cortana integration to Outlook much earlier. Oh well, better late than never.
