Microsoft’s New Send App Makes Email More SMS Like WhatsApp For iOS

There are many things you want to send to your friends so quickly, like short note or a photograph through Hotmail or any other mailing services, but you haven’t received any quick sending feature for that still. But Microsoft wants to streamline email and do something like this, introduced a new app called ‘Send‘. For iOS only, now – makes email more like SMS by removing the subject line and taking you directly to your contacts list. Great!

The Microsoft Send app for iOS brings instant messaging like experience to its email service. Pint to be noted, and that is, Send is not a full featured email app, but lets users have the SMS like experience for sending quick mails, selfies, especially to co-workers. Send comes is supposed to come in – it gives you the benefits of quick SMS-like communications with your existing email contacts, without requiring a phone number or separate app.

Probably, you have many email contacts without a phone number logged in your address book, and you might not feel like asking them for it, or inviting them to use an SMS app. Now that Send comes to the scene, which doesn’t ask for a subject line, signature or salutation, and it will surface you frequent and recent contacts right when you open the app. If your contact is a Send user too, then, you can see them typing a response.  Instead the Send email app only shows threads that have been started from within the app.

This app only shows those messages started in Send, but conversations are synced with Outlook, so that you can pick up a chat from within your email account later. Quick messages with email contacts you don’t care to ask for their phone number or IM accounts.

The Send app is a new creation of Microsoft Garage, which is the software gaints internal innvoation that lets its employees and tems turn ideas into a real world projects. It will be launched today in the United States (U.S.), Canada for iPhone users with Office 365 business and School email accounts.

If you want to give it a shot, Send is available on the iOS App Store now for download. Android and Windows Phone users will be getting their own version “soon.’

“With Send, there are no signatures, subject lines or salutations required. Our design principle for the app was to make conversations fast and fluid while keeping the people who are important to you at its core. Send connects to Office 365 business and school email accounts to surface your frequent and recent contacts.”
