- Reading an important email
- Checking your calendar
- Adding a task based on what you’re reading on the web
- Fast look up of a contact’s phone number
- Referring to info on a webpage while writing an email.
How to get it and set it up
The Outlook extension is in beta but is available to download on the Microsoft Edge add-ons store. You can get it here.
Once downloaded and enabled, an Outlook icon will be added to the Edge address bar. Users will need to sign in with their work or personal account to see their emails, calendar, contacts, and tasks, and more in a pop-up menu while browsing the web.
To use the extension, you of course need to login within your Microsoft or a Microsoft 365 account
