Microsoft this morning launched an official Apple Watch app for its email client Outlook, offering users of the service the ability to read emails and even respond to messages on their Apple Watch. Before today's app, Outlook users with an Apple Watch received basic notification messages on the wearable device with no real way for interactivity, but now notification pop-ups will show more of the email body and let users jump directly into the app from the Apple Watch's notification center.

Once in the app, users will be able to read their emails and even respond thanks to a few quick reply messages and the ability to dictate their response in a speech-to-text option. The Outlook app also comes with its own glance for quick looks at new emails in an inbox and upcoming calendar appointments. The watch app is out now for users with the iOS app already installed, and should download instantly for those with the Apple Watch's automatic download feature turned on. Those interested who have yet to download the Microsoft Outlook iOS app from the App Store can do so for free [Direct Link].

Completely agree MrGimper - its a solid app, works great. I find its faster, and is nicer than mail.app and exchange settings.

You are missing out ... it is a pretty decent app. MS actually bought it a while back and I was afraid they destroy it, however, it is getting even better with every release. I sort of like the 'new' Microsoft, they really have improved and open up since Ballmer left and they finally realize that there is a word outside of windows and the start supporting it (and I used be a big MS hater)

Well, for those of us that own and love Apple devices but work in organizations that swear by Outlook, it's a really fantastic app.

I totally agree. MS really hit a home run for me with Outlook for iOS. It blows Apple's Mail out of the water, IMO. Outlook for Mac is great too.
