Microsoft is working on an update for its email service Outlook that will assist users in removing errors from their messages.
Outlook will soon benefit from Microsoft Editor functionality on mobile platforms, according to a new entry in the company’s product roadmap.
Microsoft explained, “This feature brings the goodness of Microsoft Editor to Outlook mobile.” “As users type, we’ll offer spelling, grammar, and refinement suggestions.”
The new integration is still in the works, but it is expected to be available to users of mobile email clients by the end of next month.
Microsoft Outlook: Mobile
With many employees still preferring to work from home rather than return to the office, the number of emails being sent and received is at an all-time high. According to Statista’s most recent data, 319.6 billion emails are currently delivered each day, up from 306.4 billion in 2020.
With many of us composing a greater number of emails (and working a greater number of hours), mistakes are bound to happen – sometimes with embarrassing or even disastrous consequences.
Although Outlook on desktop (along with the rest of the Microsoft 365 suite) has benefited from Microsoft Editor functionality for some time, the addition of spelling and grammar checks to the mobile client should reduce the likelihood of typos and other errors.
In a similar vein, Microsoft recently announced that text predictions will be added to Outlook for Android and iOS. The text predictions feature not only improves efficiency for users who are in a hurry but also serves as another method for removing language errors from emails.
