The Evernote add-in allows users to save clips from emails directly to project notebook. Starting today, the Dynamics 365 add-in for Outlook is available for Outlook on iOS users with a Dynamics 365 subscription. Microsoft Translator Microsoft Translator provides you with a simple and effective way to translate and read messages in your chosen language. Microsoft is working on making it possible to use add-ins in other contexts, such as writing emails. For example, whenever you receive an email that's not written in your native language, you will be able to translate it without leaving Outlook thanks to the Microsoft Translator add-in. That is probably why Microsoft has taken a third-party approach with Outlook, letting developers code add-ins that tie into the app on mobile devices. Outlook's add-ins, by contrast, are based around intents. The company also notes that Outlook for Android will "soon" get the same functionality.
