Microsoft has spent a fair amount of time in getting the feature set right on the Android and iOS versions of the Outlook app, and it now looks that the Windows variant is also getting a look.
In fact, a case can be made that the application is the best email client on these platforms.Or at the very least, right up there at the top.
However, Outlook has more or less been left behind on the Windows platform, and it is not uncommon to find users criticizing Redmond over this policy of prioritizing rival operating systems ahead of its own Windows OS.
Yet, it now appears that Microsoft is planning to address this problem, and wants Outlook to provide the same features across all platforms — Android, iOS or Windows.
The company confirmed these plans at the Ignite 2016 conference earlier this week, saying that it will expand the feature set of the Windows version of the email client. One feature that is set to be added is Focused Inbox that is currently available for Android and iOS users exclusively.
This option automatically prioritizes important emails to keep the inbox clean.
In addition to that, Microsoft is also working on other features like @mentions and cloud attachments for the Windows version of Outlook, which are again handy options that Android and iOS users already have access to.
No information on when that happens, but considering the fact that the software titan is working on them as of this writing, it should not take long.
