Back last year, Microsoft announced its Microsoft Editor tool would come to Outlook on Apple's iOS platform. It has been a while, but the company is now fulfilling that promise. In a new update for Outlook on iOS, the Editor is coming to the popular email client.
This is a one and done update that add just this feature and nothing else. No other features, no performance tweaks, no bug fixes… just the Microsoft Editor.
If you're unfamiliar with Editor, it made its debut with the launch of Microsoft 365 Personal and Family during the first half of 2020. Initially available in Word, the tool has since become available on other Microsoft Office apps (Outlook) and web browsers.
Microsoft Editor is Microsoft's push against Grammarly. Office users were increasingly turning to tools like Grammarly to expand the built-in editing functions on Word and other apps. Editor aims to be a one-stop-shop service that offers spelling and grammar suggestions integrated into Office.
It provides writing suggestions such as style changes, spelling, grammar, and sentence construction. With its debut on iOS, Microsoft Editor means users on iPhone or iPad can use the feature in Outlook.
Here is the official changelog for the update:
“Now Outlook can help you catch those pesky little typos that your thumbs sneak in sometimes. With Microsoft Editor, get spelling, grammar, and writing style suggestion so you can write emails from your phone with confidence.”
To get the Editor, you will need to download Outlook version 4.2215.0. You can do that through the App Store link here.
