Instant Messaging with Microsoft Send, A Free Email App for iPhone

The Outlook team from Microsoft has been busy and now we know why! Introducing Microsoft Send, a stand-alone email app from Microsoft Garag for sending quick, on-the-go instant-messaging style emails or messages to people.

2AC2404000000578-0-image-a-8_1437590323675According to the company, “While tools like text messaging and IM are great for short messages, you often don’t have your co-worker’s cell phone number or an IM app on your work phone and we’ve heard loud and clear from people at work, they want all their communications available in Outlook—even if they send them from other apps. This is where Send comes in!”

Send is not a proper, full-fledged email client, it cannot be used for viewing received emails or searching the inbox – it only shows threads started or emails sent from the app;  basic in its form and mainly meant for sending quick, short messages, queries or sharing notes/moms with colleagues and co-workers without the added hassle of subjects and signatures. Send supports only Office 365 business and education accounts and the messages are synced to a user’s Outlook and Microsoft accounts.

Explaining its functionality and features, the Microsoft’s Outlook team said, “With Send, there are no signatures, subject lines or salutations required. Our design principle for the app was to make conversations fast and fluid while keeping the people who are important to you at its core.”

Send-640x624Send has arrived first as a free app on iOS with an Android and Windows Phone version already on the cards. The company has also announced that the app will be gradually opened to different types of email accounts “in the coming months.” Currently it is only available in U.S. and Canada with no immediate plans for a global launch.
