Outlook for iPadOS Gets Massive Multi-Tasking Improvements

Posted on February 4, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in iPadOS, Microsoft, Outlook.com with 10 Comments

It’s no secret Microsoft’s Outlook app is one of the best — if not the best — email client on iPhones and iPads. Microsoft is now upgrading the app once again to improve the experience for iPad users.

To date, Outlook didn’t support a lot of the main multitasking features on iPadOS. The app did offer an interface that takes advantage of the screen real estate of iPads, but it didn’t support the multitasking features.

Today, Microsoft started rolling out a new update to the Outlook app on iPadOS. The new update introduces support for Split View on iPadOS, which means you can now open it side-by-side with other apps on iPadOS. The update also enables support for Slide Over, meaning you can quickly open Outlook over other apps on iPads. Microsoft first promised the multitasking features last year, notes 9to5Mac.

And last but not least, the new update introduces support for drag-and-drop, which is where the multitasking features come in handy. Combined with the multitasking features, you can now drag-and-drop content from other apps directly into your emails when you are composing emails, which is obviously going to very useful.

You can get the new update from the App Store here.
