Microsoft Outlook for Android Wear is here

User of Android Wear will be pleased to know that this week Microsoft has announced support for their Outlook email service on Android Wear devices making it easier to keep up-to-date on your mailbox contents.

“This week, we’re bringing the best of Outlook to Android Wear. Stop reaching out for your phone, everything is now happening on your watch. Check your Outlook notifications, read your new emails and reply with pre-set messages or voice dictation right from your wrist. It’s never been that easy to manage your inbox,” said Microsoft in its official announcement.

With Outlook for Android Wear, users can simply look at their wrist if an email hits their inbox, which is a major perk if they want to leave their phone in their pocket or elsewhere while on the go.

The update is being rolled out through Google Play Store in a gradual manner so chances are that people with Android-wear watches might not have received the update yet but it would not be long before they see it so keep checking at regular intervals.

Outlook is not the first venture of Microsoft with Android Wear. Previously, the company has released a “prototype” custom keyboard for Android Wear, allowing users to write messages by drawing letters on the screen. However, it did not succeed and never received any update for nearly two years now.
