To-Do is this week receiving its latest update on 's iOS platform. With this latest release, the popular app is bumped to Version 2.5 on iPad and . For this latest release, Microsoft has added one interesting feature for To-Do.

That tool allows natural language processing. Users can type conversational tasks and Microsoft To-Do will automatically convert it into tasks with related dates and times.

Microsoft is clearly happy with this feature and has published a video to accompany the ability. That's rare for an update so this is clearly a tool Microsoft thinks will add value to the To-Do experience.

Elsewhere in Microsoft To-Do Version 2.5, the app has received improvements to the dark mode. You can check out the full changelog below:

“We've brought the rich entry task bar to iOS. Now you can set due dates, reminders and add a task to My Day all while creating a task.

If that still sounds like too much extra work, then try typing “remind me today at 8:00” into the task name and watch the magic happen. That's right, natural language processing has come to iOS.

  • We made some color improvements to our sidebar when you're in dark mode.
  • Updated some of our illustrations.
  • We fixed some crashes and squashed some bugs.”
