Microsoft Send Will Bring IM-style Messaging to Your Outlook Mails


In order to ease out the burden of emails, Google developed Inbox, and now it seems like Microsoft is heading towards the same way by creating something that can lend you a hand when you need it the most. With Microsoft Send, you can try to keep it brief when you are just in the middle of those ‘in-and-out emails.’ This application is actually less about the organization and is basically more like an IM-option for your email’s Inbox.

The app tends to provide short convos that’s usually afforded by texts or IMs, but apart from that it also allows access into your email contacts and also tends to store all of those threads in the Outlook for your later reference. In simple terms, you can just quickly send someone a message to your colleague without actually making a phone call or sending a formal email that includes a subject line etc. There also exists a ‘Quick Reply’ tool that will contain some ‘pre-entered responses’ so as to save you more time.

Microsoft’s Send will only display the short emails which were created or received by the app. Currently, Send is only available for iOS users in US and Canada, but it’ll soon arrive for Windows and Android phones in the coming future. Plus, it will also require an Office 365 education or business account so as to sign-in. This means most of us will simply have to wait for its wider availability in the months to come.
