Microsoft has released a new app called Send which makes email more like SMS. Microsoft’s Send app is in-and-out email that stripes off subject lines, salutations and signatures.
Send doesn’t require you to register any additional account, neither it requires any IM username, it just works with your email – however it requires you to have an Office 365 Business or School subscription to access the app. You can message anyone with an email address, even if they don’t have the app installed.
“Imagine you’re walking into a big presentation and someone asks you to find out if your colleague will be attending. Chances are, you don’t have your colleague’s phone number, but you will probably have their email address—especially if you’ve been emailing with them recently. You don’t have time to search your inbox, start a new thread, or even type out a subject line. You just want to ask that person, ‘Will you be at the presentation?'”
Microsoft’s Send app is available only for iOS at the moment, though the company says the app will come to other platforms in coming months. Interested iOS users can download Send from Apple App Store for free.
