Microsoft reveals string of Apple Watch app updates

Microsoft has updated a series of its key iOS apps, adding Apple Watch support for the first time.

Outlook, Microsoft’s impressive iOS email client (a rebranded take on the only Acompli app it bought last year) now lets you browse and read emails on Apple’s smartwatch.

Users can archive, schedule or delete missives right from their wrist too, so there’s no need to bust out your iPhone when you’re looking to fix your inbox. There’s also a new ‘quick replies’ function and voice dictation so you can send as well as receive messages.

Wunderlist has also been given new Apple Watch features. The productivity app, which Microsoft snapped up in June, lets you add items to your to–do lists by holding down Force Touch and dictating requests.

Microsoft is also set to add Yammer to the Apple Watch. The private social network is set to get Handoff features so you can switch conversations quickly between Apple Watch and iPhone.

As well as adding new Apple Watch features, Microsoft has also announced One Drive and One Note access for Android Wear devices.
