Windows 10 Mobile to soon receive Outlook Add-ins support

If you are an active user of Microsoft’s Outlook for Windows 10 Mobile, you will be pleased to learn the company is preparing to include Add-ins support.

If you use Outlook on Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android, you’re already set. If you are on Microsoft’s proprietary operating system for mobile devices, you’ll have to wait. The good news is that the wait won’t be long now that the feature has been officially announced.

At an earlier date, Microsoft let people know that it is aiming on delivering equal amounts of content to all eligible platforms when it comes to updating its services. This means that Android, iOS and Windows users shouldn’t feel too far apart from one another in terms of available content at any given time.

Today, we use email to communicate and to triage and prioritize information. Completing tasks often requires us to leave our inbox and access other apps and services. Add-ins for Outlook help you transform your inbox into a “do-box” and accomplish tasks quickly—right from your email. […]
Add-ins can help you get more done on the go, and save you valuable time spent switching between apps. This is why we introduced add-ins for Outlook on Windows, Mac (in Insiders) and on the web—and are now bringing them to iOS. Support for Android is coming soon.

Something similar happened with Microsoft’s Minecraft update deployment, where it tried to balance out content between the Xbox, Windows and mobile platforms. In the end, all versions of the game reached a common denominator and something similar is bound to happen to Outlook.

Additionally, the announcement for this Outlook feature was left unscheduled. So, while we have an official confirmation that it exists and it’s on its way, we are pretty much left guessing when it will actually drop. Microsoft’s hints have us thinking this release date will be in the not so distant future.
