Microsoft recently purchased Genee, a service that allows users to schedule meetings easier. To make things even better, Genee is powered by artificial intelligence and can be used via various services. In other words, using Genee, users can schedule a new meeting via text messages.
Redmond is expected to include Genee’s features into its Office 365 services in order to improve the user experience. Microsoft will most likely integrate Genee’s features into its Calendar and Outlook email service, and we’re pretty sure this will make many Office users very happy.
Genee will officially shut down on September 1, 2016. After that date, you will no longer be able to create new meetings, but will still be able to access the meetings you’ve already scheduled.
Today, we are pleased to announce that Genee has signed an agreement to be acquired by Microsoft. A new beginning means the end of another. The Genee service will shut down on September 1, 2016. While Genee will no longer send you useful reminders and agendas from your calendar, all existing calendar entries created by Genee will remain. We thank all of you who participated in Genee’s private and public betas. The Genee team will take the valuable experiences and lessons that you taught us to Microsoft, where we’ll continue to build amazing next generation intelligent experiences.
Microsoft hasn’t revealed the amount of money it paid to purchase Genee, but the company will most likely offer more information about this app and its Office 365 integration in the next few days.
