Microsoft Outlook.com has new partner add-ins including Uber, Yelp, IFTTT, Wunderlust & Evernote. So what does that mean?
The integration means users can get more things done right from their Inbox — from finding restaurants for a dinner with friends to setting up a ride to get there or paying a portion of the tab.
Here are more details on what you can do with these partner solutions as provided by Microsoft on its blog:
Uber — Need a ride to your meeting or event? No problem, set up an Uber ride reminder for any calendar event with a single tap. Prior to the time of your ride, you get an Uber reminder on your phone with the destination already set. Simply swipe the notification, confirm your Uber ride, & your car will be on its way.! Starting today, the Uber add-in is available in Outlook 2013 & Outlook on the Web for users with Office 365 & Exchange 2013 mailboxes. It’s coming to users of the new Outlook.com within the next month.
PayPal — Need to pay your portion of the dinner tab or send money to your loved ones on their birthdays? You can do this directly from your inbox using the PayPal add-in for Outlook. Starting today, the PayPal add-in is available in Outlook 2013 & Outlook on the Web for users with Office 365 & Exchange 2013 mailboxes. It’s coming to users of the new Outlook.com within the next month.
Evernote — Sharing your work with colleagues becomes simple with the Evernote Outlook add-in. Start an email, use the add-in view to find the note you want, & click to send it on its way. You can also clip emails from Outlook to Evernote, save them into a designated notebook, & add tags for an extra level of organization. Starting today, the Evernote add-in is available in Outlook 2013 & Outlook on the Web for users with Office 365 mailboxes.
