Microsoft today announced that they will enable apps in Outlook.com from Spring 2015. Outlook.com will support third-party apps that will allow users to be more productive than ever. This is also a great opportunity for developers as their apps can reach 400 million active Outlook.com customers. Last year, Microsoft announced Office 365 platform for developers which allowed developers to build apps on top of Office 365 platform for the enterprise customers. Microsoft is now bringing the same APIs to Outlook.com. Developers can now start building apps for Outlook Web App in Office 365 and it will work with Outlook.com.

Whenever a customer reads or composes an email or calendar event, your app could be there, helping them get the job done. If you have a great idea for how our customers should interact with their email or calendar, now is the time to make it happen. Not only are these apps simple to build–they use open web technologies such as HTML and Javascript–but you can start building them today.  To learn how to get started, check out Mail apps for Outlook on MSDN and the Office Dev Center.

For Outlook.com customers, these apps can be used in any browser without plugins or extensions, and will be available wherever you log in.
