Outlook gets Touch Bar support, Microsoft Translator integration and more on the Mac

Microsoft has been testing support for Touch Bar across its Office 365 apps on the Mac for a little while now. The company initially announced support for Touch Bar on its Office 365 apps back in October of last year when Apple introduce the new MacBook Pros. Today, it’s rolling out support for Touch Bar integration to Outlook on the Mac, along with a couple of other new features.

Firstly, Outlook now lets you translate emails thanks to the new Microsoft Translator integration. The update also brings support for add-ins — here’s the full changelog:

  • Touch bar support on the new MacBook Pro: In Outlook, the most relevant commands to what you’re working on are at your fingertips. (Compatible with MacBook Pro with Touch Bar only). For more information, see Office for Mac adds touch bar support.
  • Read email in your preferred language: Now you can translate email without leaving Outlook. Just turn on the Translator add-in to translate with a single tap. Choose from 60 languages. Learn more about the Translator for Outlook add-in or get it now.
  • Access more features right from your Inbox: Add-ins for Outlook let you create tasks with Wunderlist, track email responses with Boomerang, and more. Learn how to get an add-in for Outlook.

If you are an Office Insider, you can get the touchbar integration on Outlook right now and if you aren’t, you will get the update pretty soon when Microsoft rolls the update out widely.
