Microsoft Outlook for iOS Gets Support for Third Party Add-ins

Announcing the second anniversary of Outlook for iOS, Microsoft has partnered with Evernote, Giphy, Nimble, Trello, and Smartsheet to bring third-party add-ins to Outlook, helping users get work done faster. “We’re also making a few of our own add-ins available today with Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Translator, with many more to follow”, notes the official blog post. “With these add-ins, Outlook will help you accomplish awesome things”.

Outlook for iOS users will now be able to easily translate emails using a Microsoft Translator add-in, add cards to a Trello board straight from their email and quickly reply to an email thread with a funny animated GIF. Although this is just the first batch of add-ins that Microsoft has approved, the company is opening the add-in experience to other third-party developers as well, which means a lot more add-ins for Outlook mobile should be available soon.

Microsoft’s new Dynamics 365 add-in for Outlook delivers real-time insights about your business contacts and their organization, right in your inbox:

With the Dynamics 365 add-in for Outlook, you can quickly look up the Dynamics 365 record of your customer contacts, associate an email or appointment with an existing opportunity or create new records with just a few taps—right inside email—without having to copy/paste and switch back and forth between your email and Dynamics 365.

In addition to iOS, add-ins are also available for Outlook on Mac and Windows, while support for Android is coming soon. For more information, click here.
