Microsoft is betting big on its augmented reality glasses Hololens for its success in the world of mixed reality. To achieve that, it has partnered with multiple companies and has started giving away developer edition already.

Now, Microsoft is now making its popular email service, Outlook, available in augmented reality. Thus Outlook Mail on HoloLens becomes the first email experience available in mixed reality.

Outlook Mail on HoloLens seems like a redesigned version of the app available for Windows 10 devices. Microsoft has been building universal Windows apps which scale across platforms with simple tweak in code.

In a blog post, Microsoft says Outlook on HoloLens delivers a familiar experience to users who are already using the apps on Windows 10 PCs, tablets and phones.

Outlook app is available from Windows Store on HoloLens for all HoloLens Developers to test and build similar communication apps. Interestingly, HoloLens users can vertically resize the app for split view of mail and calendar just like on the desktop.
