Microsoft has just launched Cortana integration for Outlook, but not for mobile users.

The launch follows a report earlier this week claiming that integration will arrive in the future for Outlook on Android and iOS.

While mobile users will have to continue waiting, Windows 10 users can now have Cortana read their email if they use Outlook.

In addition to supporting Windows 10, the new Cortana/Outlook integration is available on the Harman Karon Invoke speaker, which has Cortana baked in for an Echo-like experience.

The new productivity ability isn’t only welcomed, but necessary for Microsoft’s assistant to compete with Google and Amazon.

The integration works the way we’d expect: the user asks, “Cortana, what’s my email?” The digital assistant responds by checking the user’s Outlook for any new messages, reading them if told to do so, and offering related functions like replying to the message on behalf of the user.
