Microsoft announced Outlook.com preview with support for add-ins and some other improvements earlier this year. The company today announced partnership with IFTT, Evernote, Wunderlist, as well as Yelp.

Alongside the new partnerships, Microsoft also announced that the company has started rolling out add-ins for PayPal, Uber, Evernote and Boomerang:

Uber—Need a ride to your meeting or event? No problem, set up an Uber ride reminder for any calendar event with a single tap. Prior to the time of your ride, you get an Uber reminder on your phone with the destination already set. Simply swipe the notification, confirm your Uber ride, and your car will be on its way! Starting today, the Uber add-in is available in Outlook 2013 and Outlook on the web for users with Office 365 and Exchange 2013 mailboxes. It’s coming to users of the new Outlook.com within the next month.

The company’s latest partnership with IFTTT is pretty important, and it’ll allow users to take automation to the next step. For example, IFTTT would let you get a notification on your phone when you get an important mail. It’ll be interesting to see if the company will be able to integrate all the IFTTT recipes into Outlook.com, however.
