In an attempt to further develop and enrich the contents of Outlook application for both mobile and PC, Microsoft announced that he bought Sunrise Mobile Calendar and will shut down its features after it will be fully integrated into Outlook. Sunrise Calendar will rise for the last time, after that it will become a part of the all-new Outlook concept.
Although we all are aware of the perks of using a powerful tool like Microsoft’s Outlook, Sunrise application used to deliver even more useful services. Sunrise Mobile Calendar, included a large variety of features that you could use in order to connect to social applications. One such feature is the “Meet” integrated service which you can use in order to arrange and schedule meetings from third-party applications. You could also use Sunrise in order to access content from Facebook, Evernote and Wonderlist, and even to get the weather forecast in you location. It also came with other integrated functions that lets you access contents from TV shows.
Sunrise Calendar will rise for the last time, letting Outlook rise above all expectations. The service is still available to users, because Outlook is still undergoing major redesign in order to accommodate the new integrated services. Microsoft officials announced that once they finish sprucing up Outlook, Sunrise service will shut down for good.
Although that you can feel the wind of change, Outlook doesn’t surprise us with anything new. Apart from some minor changes in the user interface and some pictograms, the program seems to be delivering the same services as before. These changes may have been prompted by the Sunrise development team that changed sides when Microsoft went ahead and bought both Sunrise and Outlook in early February.
Welcoming Sunrise expertise in the process of developing a whole new platform, Microsoft wants to revolutionize the way you can use this agenda. Apart from sending and receiving mails, you can program all your meeting more easily, you can create and rearrange daily tasks and you can even share you agenda and meeting planner on any social network.
The plan of buying Sunrise and Outlook cost Microsoft several million dollars, but the results are hardly disappointing. According to the number, there are approximately 1.2 billion Outlook sessions each month and Microsoft plans to expand its services even further.
So, Sunrise will never rise, but, as of today, Outlook will have a brand new look.
