The feature arrives today on iOS for Office 365 customers and will come later for Outlook.com users. We're also making a few of our own add-ins available today with Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Translator, with many more to follow. Navigate to Settings Add-ins and tap the + sign for the ones you'd like to use. NimbleNimble is a social CRM application that provides business intelligence about your email contacts and their organizations-right in email. Once enabled, simply click the Add card to Trello action to associate any incoming email with an existing board.
Outlook for Mobile is the easiest way to keep up to date on everything you need. With the new Evernote add-in for Outlook, you can clip emails from Outlook to a project notebook in Evernote, where they will appear alongside other project-related assets such as meeting notes, saved web pages or Office documents. While Microsoft prefers the word "add-ins", these are essentially third-party extensions for Outlook. I personally really like the idea of the Microsoft Translator add-on which, as you may have already guessed, lets you translate emails written in another language to English (or vice-versa) right from the Outlook app which is really, really neat. With Smartsheet's add-in for Outlook, users can get work assigned, updated and completed more quickly, without ever having to leave their email.
GIPHY to easily add GIFs to your emails and make "Congratulations" a little more fun! As per usual, it isn't clear if Microsoft plans to bring support for Outlook add-ins to the Windows 10 app which, to be honest, is quite unfortunate. The selected GIF will be included in your reply.
Samsung Pay Mini goes official for all Android phones
In addition to this, the device should also feature at least an HD display to make use of the upcoming online payment mechanism. A pre-launch trial will begin February 6 that will allow Android users to download the demo version from Google Play in Korea.
Microsoft worked with the likes of Evernote, Giphy (yay!), Nimble, Trello and Smartsheet to connect their services with Outlook and integrate them into the email and calendar experience.
Currently, add-ins are only available when reading email.
