Cortana is coming to the Outlook email and calendar app for iOS and Android, according to The Verge. The publication cites sources “familiar with Microsoft’s Outlook plans.”

Microsoft is reportedly testing a feature internally that would allow users to verbally ask the virtual assistant Cortana to read their emails to them in both iOS and Android. This would be particularly useful for commuters who depend on Outlook for their email and who want to get caught up while driving into work.

Google Assistant does not offer similar functionality with Outlook. Siri, Apple’s own digital assistant built into iOS, already does this, but not with the Outlook app. In most cases, you must use Apple’s own Mail app to access these kinds of features.
