Powerful Outlook Integrations: Twitter, PayPal, Starbucks & More
Last updated on November 2nd, 2022
In the early days of electronic mail, nowadays more known as email, the technology was used primarily for business communication. Today, email is widely used as one of the main forms of communication among organizations, employees, clients, customers, friends, family, and the general public. Nowadays emails have many features, such as those offered by Microsoft Outlook. Through the years, Outlook has evolved to bring to the table more features that adapt to the needs and technologies of people and of the times. Here is a look at some of the recent Outlook integrations and feature updates.
Outlook Connectors Keeps You Updated Right from Your Inbox
A while back Office 365 connectors were introduced by Microsoft. Office 365 Connectors deliver relevant content and updates from apps, social media, such as Twitter and Trello, as well as other services. This Connectors feature links these apps and programs to your inbox so you can track updates from your social media accounts, to-do lists, news feeds, project boards, and more. This means you don’t have to leave your email or toggle to various apps and tabs, allowing you to get more things done.
For example, you can add and activate the connector you wish to install into your Outlook 2016 service. After authentication and confirmation, you can now interact with your apps and programs right from your Inbox and complete tasks right from Outlook.

Aside from Connectors, Outlook also offers Actionable Messages, which allows you to complete actions right from your email, such as paying your bills, approving expense reports, updating your project boards, and so many more.
With the recent Outlook integrations, you can add in more functions to your email. This means you don’t have to move back and forth between your emails and another service, such as your customer relationship management, task management, scheduling, or note-taking app. Outlook streamlines all your tasks in one smooth interface so you can get things done more efficiently and therefore more swiftly–all right from your email. This also means you don’t have to switch or go back and forth between different apps, computers, or devices.
