Microsoft today unveils a new version of its task management app, Microsoft To Do. The new version of the app includes key features like a fresh new design, better accessibility, and more integration with Microsoft apps and services. The new features are heavily inspired by some of the most-loved features on Wunderlists.
With the new version of the app, you will be able to “choose from a wide range of backgrounds, including the beloved Berlin TV tower that was a feature in Wunderlist.” Further, there’s an option to choose a different background for every list if you’re interested.
Another new feature that has been added to the To Do app is the personalized daily planner feature, My Day. It will “help you accomplish what’s meaningful and important to you every day,” while Smart suggestions in My Day will help you plan what you need to accomplish that day.
By adding features similar to that of the Wunderlists app, Microsoft tries to convince the Wunderlists users to switch to the To Do app. Interestingly enough, the To Do announcement comes at a time when Wunderlist founder wanted to buy back the product from Microsoft to avoid the shut down of Wunderlist. However, there is no update as to when the Redmond giant will shut down its $200 million acquisition.
Microsoft’s new version of the To Do app is available across all major platforms — Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.
