The first set of add-ins include the likes of Uber, Boomerang, PayPal and Evernote and the soon to be launched include Yelp, Microsoft’s Wanderlust and IFTTT.

The idea behind these add-ins is closely related to enhancing productivity for users by enabling them to use these apps within Outlook rather having to access them separately.
