Microsoft is delivering on its promise to bring a native Outlook app to the Samsung Galaxy wearables. The company started testing support for a new Outlook app for the Galaxy Watch earlier this month, and it officially launched the new app today.
The new Galaxy Watch app for Outlook is part of Microsoft’s partnership with Samsung, which involved Samsung integrating some of Microsoft’s services into its latest flagship phones.

As for the new Outlook app, it actually provides some decent functionalities. Your email addresses will automatically connect over from your phone on the Watch, and you can get notifications for new email, as well as your calendar events. The app lets you browse your inbox as well, and you reply right from your Watch or take actions like Flag, Mark ars Read, Unread, Archive, and Delete. And if that wasn’t enough for the small screen, you will also be able to filter your email by account, unread, and flagged.
You can get the new Outlook app from the Galaxy Store here, but do note that the link doesn’t seem to work if you are from outside the United States.
